Hidden Histories

2020

Hidden Histories, Warrington Museum and Art Gallery, Warrington UK,


An exhibition of Susan's work at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery supported by Arts&Heritage Meeting Point Projects & Culture Warrington. Susan made a number of interventions into the museum’s collection with the assistance of museum staff, selecting artefacts that celebrated the collection and shed light on imperial and empire histories, including objects that are being considered for return to their place of origin. Susan's sculptures are made with specially sourced industrial and consumer objects, which she juxtaposed amongst the museum’s collection objects, creating dialogues that explore themes of consumerism, trade, expansionism and the wilful destruction of the planet.
