Xiuching Tsay’s work essentially aims to irradiate some obscured objects that remain in her memories, resurrect their essences and rediscover their hidden characters through an ecstatic quality of vision. So, she adopts the concept of hallucination in order to recondition her perceptions toward those intimated objects. This hallucinatory practice experiments with the concept of water because water has qualities that unfold infinite visions as water melts all the possible subject matters into the most ambiguous forms. In philosophy, water is also represented as a spiritual agent that brings a non-living thing to life.
Xiuching (b. Thailand) lives and works in London and Chonburi. She graduated with an MA in Painting from Royal College of Art in 2019, having previously completed her BA in Fashion Illustration at London College of Fashion (2014-2016).
