Susan Hiller in conversation with Susie Orbach

With a practice extending over 40 years, Susan Hiller is one of the most influential artists of her generation. Her ground-breaking installations, multi-screen videos and audio works have achieved international recognition and are widely acknowledged to be a major influence on younger British artists. Many of her works explore the liminality of phenomena including the practice of automatic writing (Sisters of Menon, 1972/79; Homage to Gertrude Stein, 2010) and collective experiences of unconscious, subconscious and paranormal activity (Dream Mapping, 1974; Belshazzar’s Feast, 1983-4; Dream Screens,1996; Psi Girls,1999; Witness, 2000).

In 1994 Hiller exhibited the critically acclaimed After the Freud Museum and in 2011 Tate Britain held a major retrospective of her work. In conversation with psychotherapist, psychoanalyst, writer and social critic Susie Orbach she talks candidly about her life and work.

Part of a season of talks and events accompanying the  exhibition 'Mad, Bad and Sad: Women and the Mind Doctors', 10 October 2013 - 2 February 2014, of which Susan Hiller is an exhibiting artist.
