Susan Hiller, The Last Silent Movie
Again the Tate Britain didn’t dissappoint with an exhibition by Susan Hiller. As a rather conceptual artist and it seems, habitual collector, she appeals to teh designer in me. She has a whole room it seems, dedicated to collections.
I enjoyed Ten Months, which focused on her pregnancy in the 70s, which I thought was a fresh look at things, and the collection of Rough Sea postcards, which began the exhibition. I must admit, I’m a bit of a seaside/coast fan with a particular liking for postcards, so I was biased. I know my mum didn’t find it very interesting.
Her show was finished by The Last Silent Movie, which (pictured) I felt was rather clever. I particularly liked the etchings that feature the soundwaves produced by each individual, as they were really beautiful.
Never underestimate the Tate Britain.
