Born in 1980 in Taipei, Taiwan.
Tsai graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design (USA) in 2002 and completed her postgraduate degree at L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Art (Paris) in 2010. Now living and working between Taipei and Paris, Tsai’s practice draws on an interest in calligraphy and her study of Buddhism, in particular the ideas of transience and impermanence that are at the heart of Buddhist philosophy. Tsai’s choice of materials reflects the location in which her work is made; the materials create direct and intimate connections with the audience, and the writing of the texts upon them is incorporated into the works as a form of performance.
Over the years, Tsai has been exhibited in many leading international museums and institutions. Her works are also part of the permanent collections of Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), Queensland Art Gallery (Brisbane, Australia) and Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (Sydney, Australia).
