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

Presented in a cloth covered box lined with douppion silk, the miniaturised postcards can be arranged in a configuration of your choice, using the characteristics of each to create a composite picture.

The edition By Night is part of the ongoing series Rough Seas, which Hiller has been producing since 1982. Hiller collects vintage postcards which depict the English coast and the sea, often selected for their surreal or ethereal tone, and reproduces these images print. This edition features images of the sea taken by night, many featuring lighthouses, and many with unnatural or ghostly colours.

Susan Hiller was born in Tallahassee, Florida in 1940, and raised in and around Cleveland, Ohio. She received a BA from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts in 1961. After spending a year in New York studying photography, film, drawing and linguistics, Hiller pursued a post-graduate degree at Tulane University in New Orleans, and completed a PhD in Anthropology in 1965.

Beginning her artistic practice in the early 1970s, Hiller was influenced by the visual languages of Minimalism, Conceptual art and Surrealism, as well as her study of anthropology. Hiller moved to the UK in the early 70s, and her first exhibition was a group show at Gallery House in London in 1973. Several of her works are held in the Tate collection, and Tate Britain presented a major exhibition of her work in 2011.

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.
