Ling‐Wen Tsai was born in Taiwan, where she spent the first 25 years of her life before coming to the United States. Her practice spans a broad range of media, and her work has taken the form of installation, performance, video, photography, painting, drawing, and combinations of these media. Ling‐Wen often integrates sound/music and body/movement into her artistic practice, and has collaborated with a number of artists, musicians and composers, including Lior Navok (Israeli composer), Tracey Cockrell (sound artist), George Winston (pianist/composer), Improvisational String Quartet (musicians), Nathan Kolosko (guitarist/composer), Carl Dimow (flutist/composer), and Deborah Wing‐ Sproul (artist.) These collaborative efforts have manifested themselves in many of her recent works and exhibitions. Ling‐Wen earned a BS degree in Nursing from Chung‐Shan Medical College, a BA in studio art from Webster University, and an MFA in sculpture from Washington University.
