Vertigen de la Vida (Dizziness of Life), 2011

Miami Beach 2016
Peter Blum Gallery
The film is a continuation of works by Su-Mei Tse exploring nostalgia and the recollection of blurred memories. Inspired by one of the first Dada movies, Man Ray’s Le Retour à la raison (1923), Tse interprets these impressions through images and sounds of a moving carousel at night. Tse collaborated with composer Giancarlo Vulcano on the score to further emphasize the idea of blurred and intangible memories with the texture of an ongoing circular flow.
