Susan Hiller: Altered States

 
  • June 05 - September 02
  • The Polygon Gallery
  • 101 Carrie Cates Court
    North Vancouver, BC V7M3K7

One of the most influential artists of her generation, Susan Hiller has been an innovator for close to five decades. Comprising landmark video installations and photographs, Altered States focuses on Hiller's investigations into dream states, the inexplicable, and our collective unconscious.

Involving extensive research, Hiller assembles audio and visual artefacts from diverse cultural source material to map popular beliefs. The exhibition includes Psi Girls, movie footage of adolescent girls performing telekinetic feats; Resounding (Infrared), hypnotic visual and audio recordings of mysterious phenomena; and automatic writing. The works in Altered States reflect on how technology and language mediate our perceptions of the world.
