Susan Hillar 1940 - 2019

Everyone at The Model would like to express their deep sadness at the death of Susan Hiller this week. Susan was one of the brightest minds and most wonderful artists of our time, and it was a pleasure to work with her on the presentation of her retrospective exhibition here at The Model in 2014. Inspired by postcards, place-names, automatic writing and newspaper articles, Susan probed questions of memory, loss, the subconscious and the uncanny, in a practice she described as ‘paraconceptual’. Through her work, she shone a light on what else might be possible in this world. It was wonderful to be back in touch with Susan over recent months, and her poetic and poignant work, The Last Silent Movie, will be on view at The Model 9 Feb-14 April. We are all very pleased to be able to celebrate her remarkable contribution to the visual arts through its presentation.
