Wan-Shuen Tsai grew up in the archipelago of Penghu, Taiwan. Studied and lived in France during several years and nowadays settled in the region of Taipei. Her artwork is shared between mixed-media installation, drawing, video and poetry. Her installations are ephemeral and constitutes a specific relationship to the physical space and architecture. Her image creation suggests an opening of narration and transforms a landscape into a mental space.
In parallel of her personal projects, she collaborates since 2004 with sound artist Yannick Dauby under the group name Shijingren, focusing on audio-visual works about landscape. This project has been invited by artist residencies in France, Taiwan and Estonia. In 2008, founded Atelier Hui-Kan developping activities related to pedagogy, publication and communities (www.hui-kan.com). In 2006, she published a collection of her poems and she’s currently preparing the second one.
