Su-Mei Tse

b. 1973, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg; lives and works in Luxembourg.

Su-Mei Tse is an artist and musician known for her interdisciplinary practice spanning installation, sculpture, photography, and sound. Her work frequently explores themes of identity, memory, and cultural heritage, and she frequently incorporates elements of Eastern and Western culture into her pieces. Tse’s work is often poetic and meditative, capable of creating a sense of contemplation and introspection in the viewer. Her use of simple materials and forms, combined with her attention to detail and sensitivity to sound and space, creates a powerful and immersive experience that invites viewers to reflect on their own perceptions of the world around them.

Su-Mei Tse represented Luxembourg at the Venice Biennale in 2003 and was awarded the Leono d’Oro award for her tripartite installation Air Conditioned.
