Susan Hiller, Witness, 2000. Photography by P Taghizadeh. Artangel.    SUSAN HILLER: RECALL
 

BALTIC presents a major exhibition by artist Susan Hiller. Constituting the most wide-ranging survey of Hiller’s work in a career which spans over 30 years, the exhibition combines many of her most prominent installations alongside a major new BALTIC commission, Clinic.

Presented for the first time in BALTIC’s Level 4 art space, Clinic is an audio installation which takes as its subject matter the personal accounts of individuals who believe they have had a Near Death Experience. Hiller’s interest does not lie in advocating or disputing the anecdotal or scientific evidence for or against the reality of these experiences, but in regarding them as social facts.
Clinic incorporates a remarkable archive of vivid stories from many individuals across a wide range of cultural backgrounds, which might be metaphors, misperceptions, myths, delusions or the truth.

This solo show also includes a number of the artist’s major works, from the colour projection Magic Lantern, 1987, through to more recent installations which investigate paranormal phenomena – Wild Talents, 1997 and Witness, 2000.
Recall: Selected Works 1969-2004 is guest curated by James Lingwood.

The exhibition is accompanied by a major new publication, co-produced by Museu Serralves, Porto and Kunsthalle Basel and edited by James Lingwood. Exhibitions of Susan Hiller’s work will be shown in these venues from November 2004 – January 2005 and February – April 2005 respectively.
