Su-Mei Tse: Notes

With an almost Surrealist sensibility for collage and lyrical combinations and juxtapositions, the artist Su-Mei Tse experiments with free-form narrative to share the works and references that have inspired her on her creative path.

This artist book layers a variety of images with notes and quotes selected by Tse. It was published in conjunction with her exhibition, Floating Memories.

Born in Luxembourg, based also in Paris and Berlin, Su-Mei Tse has gained international recognition with her videos, photographs, sculptures, and installation works, which often incorporate sound and musical components. Her work explores the nature of perception and temporality, and urges viewers towards moments of deep introspection.
