This is the first solo exhibition in Japan for Tse Su-Mei (born 1973), an up-and-coming artist from Luxemburg.

Since winning the Golden Lion at the 2003 Venice Biennale for her Luxemburg Pavilion, Su-Mei has participated in many solo and group exhibitions around the world. A cellist born to a British pianist mother and a Chinese violinist father, Su-Mei is known for artworks that explore the themes of music, sound, Western and Eastern cultures and identity.

This exhibition includes video installations, sculptures and photographs, each addressing serious themes with a stimulating intellectual humor.


Born in Luxemburg in 1973. Currently lives and works in Berlin and Luxemburg.
