Chen Sai Hua Kuan 陳賽華灌 (b. 1976)

Chen Sai Hua Kuan was born in Singapore in 1976, he graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts in 1997 and obtained a Master in Fine Arts from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London in 2007. His practice is uniquely open. Garbage, silverware, industrial materials, anything can inspire him and becomes his material. With no limitation and boundary, Sai Hua Kuan’s installation, video, performances, photographs, and objects combine visual simplicity and playfulness. However, his executions are often laborious, technical, mechanical, and life-threatening. Through his works, viewers are inspired by the sense of inventiveness, precision, freedom, and ingenuousness.

He has exhibited extensively on international platforms such as ‘Singapore Biennale’ (2013 Singapore), ‘EV+A’ (2010, Ireland), ‘Moscow International Biennale for Yong Art’ (2010, Russia), ‘14th Media Art Beinnale WRO’ (2011, Poland) and more.

In March 2015, Sai’s latest work titled ‘Ling Ting 2’ was commissioned and debut on the Grand Palais steps, on the occasion of the Art Paris Art Fair in Paris. He is currently taking part in an artist residency at the prestigious Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, Germany.
