Description
The limited edition By Night, 2018 was produced by Susan Hiller as an edition of 50. Each box is accompanied by a card, signed and numbered by the artist.

The artist invites you to arrange the miniaturised post cards in a configuration of your choice, using the characteristics of each to create a composite picture.

In this work Hiller has combined elements of her iconic Rough Sea postcard series in a seductive set of 100 miniaturised postcards featuring nocturnal views of giant waves cresting over cliffs and beaches and bombarding esplanades, grand hotels and piers, echoing the great tradition of the sublime in miniature. By Night, 2018, proposes these popular British images as slim cracks in the polite surface of everyday life, hints of desires for the excessive, the unruly and the fantastic.

With a multimedia practice extending over 40 years, Hiller is one of the most influential artists of her generation. Since first making innovative use of audio and visual technology in the early 1980s, her ground breaking installations, multi-screen videos and audio works have achieved international recognition. Each of Hiller’s works is based on specific cultural artefacts from our society, which she uses as her basic materials

Hiller’s work draws inspiration from sources as diverse as postcards, dreams, automatic writing, archives, Punch & Judy shows, UFO sightings, and horror movies. She transposes these source materials into oblique or unsettling works of art using archival and curatorial techniques of collecting, cataloguing and display.
