Yuz Museum Shanghai, in co-organization with Mudam Luxembourg, present “Nested”
frby Su-Mei Tse, the artist’s first solo exhibition in China, from December 18th, 2018 to March 24th, 2019. Marked by her cosmopolitan origins, between Europe and Asia, and by an attention to the sonorous dimension of the world, the practice of Su-Mei Tse involves issues such as time, memory, musicality, and language. Taking various forms – sculptures, videos, photographs, installations – her artworks always operate between different fields: between sound and image, nature and culture, mental space and sensory experience for example.
This exhibition is the result of several years of research in different geographical contexts, starting with Italy and Asia. It brings together a large body of recent and new works, including a major installation produced locally in Shanghai, Stone Collection II. New directions are apparent in her work, including contemplation, our relation to the vegetable and the mineral, the multiplicity of modes of existence, and the possibility of a sensitive relationship with the past.
Su-Mei Tse was born in 1973 in Luxembourg. She lives and works in Luxembourg and Berlin.
