This show looks back over the influential artist’s works exploring the unconscious and the role of the artist as collector and curator.

For her first exhibition at the gallery, the American artist who’s lived in London for the past 40 years will present a survey of works from her extensive six-decade career. Hiller has used a variety of media including automatic writing, eyewitness accounts and photographic aura portraits to explore unexplained phenomena and occult activities of our society. Exhibiting in both galleries, some early works not seen since the 70s will be displayed alongside her most recent work as well as three major installations including the campfire version of ‘Belshazzar’s Feast’ (1983–84) – the first video installation work bought by Tate. Here, Hiller’s anthropological eye investigates the unconscious and belief systems.
