Susan MacWilliam: Modern Experiments
Susan MacWilliam: Modern ExperimentsSusan MacWilliam: Modern Experiments is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of MacWilliam’s work to date. It presents key pieces from the artist’s career with a focus on works created from 1998 onward when the artist began working with video.

Since then, MacWilliam’s work has investigated obscure and overlooked histories and cases of perceptual and paranormal phenomena. Using anecdote, reconstruction, forms of portraiture and detailed editing, she has made work about mediumship, ectoplasm, x-ray vision, telepathy, table tilting, clairvoyance and dermo optical perception.

The work presented in this exhibition forms a unique and significant body of material exploring subjects that are on the periphery and beyond mainstream scientific and psychological study.
