Susan Hiller

Susan Hiller was born in the USA, and moved to London in 1973 where she has lived and worked since. Her practice encompasses museological and archival installations, video, photography, performance and writing. Major influences on her work include Minimalism, Fluxus, aspects of Surrealism and her previous study of anthropology: she describes her art as a kind of 'archaeological investigation, uncovering something to make a different kind of sense of it'. Mid-career retrospectives were held at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London in 1986, and at Tate Liverpool in 1996. Hiller's numerous solo and international group exhibitions have led to her work being widely acknowledged as an important influence on younger British artists. She is represented by the Lisson Gallery, and examples of her work are held in many international public collections including four major installation works in the collection of Tate, London. A major survey exhibition of her work was held at Tate Britain in 2011.
