Susan Hiller

Susan Hiller is perhaps best known for her installations, multi-screen videos and audio works which are based on specific cultural artifacts from our society. Much of her work explores the liminality of things like automatic writing, dear death experiences, and paranormal activity. Hiller was influenced by Minimalism and Conceptual art as she began to make work in the early 1970s. Her practice has also been informed by her training in anthropology, a field she abandoned when she decided, during a lecture on African Art, that she would pursue art instead.


Hiller was born in 1950 in Tallahasse, Florida and has been mainly based in London since the early 1960s. After studying film and photography at The Cooper Union and archaeology and linguistics at Hunter College in New York, Hiller went on to a National Science Foundation fellowship in anthropology at Tulane University in New Orleans. Her career has been recognized by survey exhibitions at the ICA in London, ICA in Philadelphia, Museu Serralves in Porto, Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, and by a major retrospective exhibition at Tate Britain.
