Cube Study (Remake), 2019. Black & white photograph, silver gelatin on Dibond, 57 1/8 x 47 1/4 inches (145 x 120 cm). Edition of 5.

NEW YORK, NY.- Peter Blum Gallery is presenting a solo exhibition of new work by Su-Mei Tse entitled, In the (very) beginning at 176 Grand Street, New York. This is the artist’s fifth solo show with the gallery, and first exhibition following her acclaimed 2017-2019 traveling exhibition entitled, Nested at Mudam Luxembourg, the Aargauer Kunsthaus in Switzerland, the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, and the Yuz Museum in Shanghai.

Su-Mei Tse is a visual artist whose multidisciplinary work contemplates existence, notions of time, and rhythm. She expresses life questions by capturing fleeting moments of memories and feelings through various media including photography, sculpture, film, and installation. Impressions in everyday existence whether they be a passing thought, transitory state, or a visual or auditory experience are lyrically translated in her work.

Tse was initially trained as a classical cellist before completing visual arts studies. This leads her to reflect on the nature of music and self, while the perception of visual and auditory elements remain central to her work. The artist’s practice is not solely seen and heard, but it is felt. In the new film Shaping, Tse presents an ongoing act of clay being formed by hand and then dissolving, accompanied by a soundtrack based on low frequencies. This is not towards a final result, but to demonstrate continual movements creating an endless choreography. Similarly responding to her background of Chinese and British descent, Tse offers contemplations of cultural variance stemming from her own relationship between East and West.

Su-Mei Tse (b. 1973, Luxembourg) lives and works in Luxembourg and Berlin. She received her MFA from Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris (2000). Selected solo museum exhibitions include: Taipei Fine Arts Museum (2019); Yuz Museum, Shanghai (2018); the Aargauer Kunsthaus in Switzerland (2018); Mudam Luxembourg (2018); Académie de France à Rome, Villa Médicis, Rome (2014); Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (2011); Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston (2009); Seattle Art Museum (2008); MIT List Visual Arts Center, Boston (2007); Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei (2007); and MoMA PS1, New York (2006). She has participated in: Biennale of Sydney (2018); Setouchi Triennale, Japan (2016); and São Paulo Biennial (2004). She was awarded: the Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco Prize (2009); Edward Steichen Award (2005); and the Venice Biennale Golden Lion for best national presentation (2003).
