Ray Tsung Jui Tsou is a Taiwanese multidisciplinary artist. Born in 1994 in Taiwan, she holds a B.F.A in Acting from Taipei National University of the Arts. She experiments with various mediums, such as painting, textile art, sculpture, photography, dance, and performing arts. Tsou aims to amplify the seemingly meaningless mundane. Using intuitive materials such as unfiltered words, visuals from meditation, impromptu drawings, and improvised movement, she expands on these nuances and create pieces that allow feelings and emotions to organically manifest through abstracted lines, words, and colors. Her work embodies private materials from her past and present such as dreams, fantasies, and emotional memories. Through weaving subconscious experiences into a visual language, Tsou seek to explore the interconnectedness of the collective subconscious within humanity, and to communicate and meditate with both her inner self and the viewers. As a performer, she had worked with companies including Voleur du Feu Theatre, Anarchy dance theatre, BIU theatre, Thatalright Art Space, and Godot ArtAssociation. Her visual art works had been selected to be in The Art Student League of New York’s juried exhibition Life Under the Pandemic Moon, and Exhibition Outreach: Primavera. In 2022, she was invited to exhibit her artwork in Taiwan: A World of Orchids exhibition curated by Queens Botanical Garden and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York. Tsou’s two solo exhibitions Embroidered Emotions Project and A Strolling Person was showcased in Absence Theater gallery and Atmosphere Cafe in Tainan, Taiwan in 2023. Tsou is participating Performa Biennial 2023 as a performer in the work im a pause im a fiction im a pervert im a dream, presented by Canal Projects. She was invited by Performance Space New York to lead a workshop of her own movement research I care more about why you move instead of how you move in Open Movement. In January 2024, Tsou performed in Barnett Cohen’s piece whisper economies of blackmarket thought in Movement Research at Judson Church.
