Moment (Rue du Pont-aux-Choux) at Peter Blum Gallery
Luxembourgian artist Su-Mei Tse creates lyrical visual fields, often incorporating sonic elements in her videos, sculptures, and installations to explore the intangible realms of memory, time, music, and language. Trained as a classical cellist, Tse's works create psychological 'nests' for fleeting moments, as seen in her touring exhibition Nested, which travelled to Mudan Luxembourg, the Aargauer Kunsthaus, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, and the Yuz Museum in Shanghai between 2017 and 2019. Moment (Rue du Pont-aux-Choux) (2019) is exemplary of the subtlety of Tse's work, the inkjet print beautifully framing sparse autumn leaves and branches that reach out from the fog and brush against a pane of glass, a rustle almost audible.
