Matt’s Gallery presents works by Susan Hiller who investigates into the numinous, the ephemeral, and the personal. Died in January 2019, the exhibition has been developed since then in close collaboration with Susan Hiller’s son, Gabriel Coxhead.
The exhibition features a video, “Running on Empty” (2017), a monumental audio-sculptural installation that incorporates 102 cathode-ray tube television sets programmed to play reports of near-death experiences; and a macabre hand puppet of a ghost or skeleton, most likely made by Hiller some time in the early 2000s, it relates to her pioneering video installation, An Entertainment, which used footage filmed at Punch and Judy shows.
