Our gallery carries a series of her work focusing on her father at work, play and with the family. These photos unveil the warm and fun-loving life under the lens of the artist (as Snake) as well as the palpable emotional and cultural connection between generations.
Based in: New York
New York-based photographer, Cai Wen-You calls herself a “reluctant artist and day dreamer". At the age of five, she received her first camera and from then on her life became intrinsically entwined with photography. Working closely with her father, the renowned international artist Cai Guo-Qiang (ACC Fellow 1995), Cai Wen-You records the daily life of the artist and her family through her lens which also unveil the palpable emotional and cultural connection between generations. Cai said, “My father is ‘rooster’, my mother is ‘tiger’, my younger sister is ‘sheep’ and I’m ‘snake’. We have quite different characters but formed a harmonious, loving and playful family”.
Born in 1989 Tokyo, Cai is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, and Goldsmiths College. In 2015, she published her memoir When You Make No Art, about growing up in the art world. The following year, Cai founded Special Special, an art edition gallery and concept store in New York. Her photographs made their exhibition debut at MGM Cotai, Macau in 2019.
Alisan has been showcasing her works since 2020, and has included her works in several group exhibitions: 2nd Annual of Asian Cultural Council Fellows, 2020 and Art 021 Online Platform, 2020.
