Early life

Tse's daughter, the son of a Chinese father, a violinist, and an English mother, a pianist, was born in Luxembourg City on January 29, 1973. She earned the Cello First Prize in 1991 before starting her studies at the Conservatoire de Musique in Paris, first training as a classical cellist at the Luxembourg Conservatory. She obtained a diploma in Textile & Printing from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués in 1996. In 2000, she completed a plastic arts degree at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.


Su-Mei Tse Career


Tse's art is the result of a continuously evolving mix of photography, film, and objects in which sound, rhythm, and music play a significant role. La Marionnette (1999) is a series of her early creations, in which her cello is inevitably interrupted by puppet strings tied to her legs. The music in Das wohltemperierte Klavier (2001) is ruined by splints bandaged to the player's fingers.

She won the Golden Lion in 2003 for her exhibit "Air conditioned" in the Luxembourg pavilion at the Venice Biennial. street sweepers in their distinctive Paris uniforms are shown to be swept away from the desert sand to the soft sound of brooms against asphalt in Le balayeurs du désert (The Desert Sweepers). The second major work "The Echo," as well as a film, depicts an Alpine scene in which a tiny figure plays the cello, and the simple sounds of the instrument being represented by the mountains. These and other parts of the exhibit were actually a play on the sound in air conditionné, denoting the notions of ère (era), aire (place), and tune (air and tune).

In 2005, Tse was selected for a solo exhibition at the Renaissance Society titled "The Ich-Manifestation." Five video works were on display. The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's most recent exhibit, "Floating Memories," (2010), is an installation that blends sound, sculpture, and video projection in which a revolving gramophone record brings back childhood memories.
