CV

LiChun Tseng
Born: Taipei, Taiwan, 1979
Living and working: Rotterdam&Utrecht, Netherlands, 2007

Lichun Tseng is a Taiwanese artist based in the Netherlands. In her works, she is interested in searching for the experience of the vital dimensions of life, absorbing and partaking in it, grasping its wholeness; in which exploration and reflective contemplation are profound mental drives. She approaches her research and practice mainly with 16mm film, installation, and performance in the last years. She is a member of Filmwerkplaats, an artist-run film lab in Rotterdam.
