Hauntings: Susan Hiller
by Ina Cole
A pioneer of multimedia installation art in the 1980s, Susan Hiller went on to create a complex body of work that subverts our understanding of reality, offering an intellectual investigation into the darkest recesses of the human imagination. Accepted arguments are swept aside as Hiller embarks on an enquiry into alternative modes of representation and explanation. Her multi-faceted use of materials and technology immerses the viewer in a world of imagery and sound, creating an altered state of consciousness that questions the very nature of existence.

Hand Grenades, 196972. Ashes of paintings in glass jars, rubber stoppers, labels, and Pyrex bowl, 11 x 18 x 18 cm.
