MOT International presents the first solo exhibition of Susan Hiller in Belgium. Focusing on key pieces from the 70s and 80s, Susan Hiller: Aspects of the Self 1972-1985 brings to light major themes addressed in the artist’s work, such as modes of self-representation, relations between conscious and unconscious elements in art practice and investigations of cultural materials whose potentials have been hidden, forgotten or repressed.
Acclaimed as one of the most influential artists of her generation, Susan Hiller was born in 1940 in the USA and has been based mainly in London since the early 1960s. Her career has been recognised by major survey exhibitions at the ICA, London (1986); ICA, Philadelphia (1998); Museu Serralves, Porto (2004); Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2006); Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2007); Kunst-Raum des Deutschen Bundestages, Berlin (2008); Kunsthalle Nuremberg (2012) amongst others, and includes a major retrospective exhibition at Tate Britain, London (2011).
