蔡海如  HAI-RU TSAI

出生居住於台北。超過三十年的藝術創作與國內外發表經驗,同時也是海桐藝術中心創辦者、新樂園藝術空間成立之創始成員。曾擔任女性藝術家協會理事,並從事美術與多媒體設計及人力資源教育訓練等工作。

她的創作始終隨著自身遭逢不同生命階段的女性角色與自主感知,或疑惑、困境與自我療癒等經驗,而以身體、空間、影像、物件等裝置手法進行藝術與生命存有的探討。


2003年,當她成為一名母親之後,創作轉變成更為複雜的社會場域連結,或邀請她人進行參與的藝術形式,企圖釐清與處理女性作為母親、女兒與社會照顧者的好奇與不平。2008年開始爬梳與父親、家族有關的大小歷史,2013年之後的幾年才逐漸能以藝術之名為藉口,處理和自身家庭相關的白色恐怖議題和歷史記憶,以及邀請與策劃第二代女兒們參與共同面對成長處境的藝術展覽。2019年於台北當代藝術館創作「獄外之囚」相關之〈生命之花〉裝置作品。

Born and based in Taipei, Hai-Ru Tsai holds over three decades of experience in art and has exhibited in both Taiwan and overseas. Founder of Haiton Art Center and a founding member of Shin Len Yuan Art Space, Tsai has also previously served as director of the Taiwan Women's Art Association and is active in the fields of art and multimedia design and also devoted in human resources education and training.

Tsai has always used art to reflect on her own experiences throughout different stages in life, including her feminine[d1]  experiences, self-perception, doubts, conundrums, and self-healing. She uses body, space, images, objects, and other installation methods to examine art and the purpose of life. 

After becoming a mother in 2003, Tsai’s art has transformed to connect with more complex social domains, and she has also begun creating participatory art that involves other women, seeking to use art to clarify and process any curiosities and injustices related to women’s roles as mother, daughter, and social caretaker. In 2008, she began examining historical recounts of various scales related to her father and her family, and it wasn’t until after 2013 that she was able to slowly process her family’s connection and historical memory with the period of White Terror in Taiwan. Tsai also curated an exhibition inviting the daughters of White Terror victims to come forward and collectively examine the experiences they had in their formative years. In 2019, Tsai created the installation work, Flower of Life, exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, which is a part of “A Jail Beyond the Prison Walls” (untold stories by female family members of White Terror victims).  

 [d1]請問還有其他的用字嗎?因為不想直接被聯想到是與masculine的相對的女性


以下建議請參考:

女性角色


including her role as a woman


including her gender experiences
