Susan Hiller was born in the United States in 1940, and studied and worked as an anthropologist before becoming an artist and settling in London in the early 1970s.
Hiller's startlingly original works are inspired by overlooked and unnoticed aspects of our culture, including postcards, dreams, automatic writing and first-hand accounts of encounters with alien life and near-death experiences. She has described her work as 'paraconceptual', situated at a meeting point between conceptual art and the paranormal. The results of her explorations are displayed in media as varied as artist's books, video, projections, drawings and large-scale installations.
Comprehensive and extensively illustrated, accompanying a major solo exhibition, this book surveys the breadth of Hiller's long and fruitful career to date. Including a new conversation with the artist and contributions by leading critics, as well as a selection of previously published texts, this is the most thorough investigation of Hiller's achievements yet published.
