Sai (aka Chen Sai Hua Kuan) (b.1976, Singapore) lives and works in Singapore. Sai is interested in the notion of play within daily life. His practices often challenge the habituated eye by deconstructing and transforming everyday objects, found materials and situations, so as to invite fresh interpretations of them. Sai sees his art as the outcome of conditional activities determined and enabled by site and context, which go beyond object-making and conventional studio practice. His work has been included in numerous reginal and international exhibitions, including Comma Space, Singapore (2020), Creative Center Osaka, Japan (2019); Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany (2016); and 4th Singapore Biennale (2013) etc. Sai received an MFA in sculpture from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (2007).
