Tsan Wang is an artist and researcher born and raised in Sichuan, China. She spent her formative years living between Beijing and Tokyo before settling in Vancouver. She works and experiments with still and moving images, text, drawings, and field Recordings.
Tsan is interested in the ever-presence of nature, land, earth, and water regardless of human movement or intervention. Her ongoing research tries to create or unearth new ways to understand what is the decentralised relation between us and the otherworldly, a tangled and deeply intimate interconnection between disparate forms of existence. Tsan's artistic sensibility is characterized by inclusiveness and transience, inspired by the qualities of water. Through her work, she engages in imaginary dialogues about the form of self, longing and belonging, displacement, and impermanence, constantly evolving and transforming her artistic vision within contemporary feminist discourse.
Tsan has exhibited work in group shows in China, U.K., and U.S. She is currently based in London where she is completing an MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art (London, U.K). Previously she studied Fine Art & Painting at Emily Carr Art & Design University (Vancouver, CA). Her MA thesis titled “Undisturbed Water” is part of RCA’s permanent library collection.
