” in light of recent environmental and humanitarian disasters – there are many indicators and forewarnings that should be changing the ways we think about the world. Strangely and almost daily, the supernatural,elemental forces of nature seem to be demanding this seismic shift from humans.”Susan Norrie, April 2011
Susan Norrie works across media including video, photography and painting. Her recent projects have focused on intercultural issues. Norrie was one of three artists representing Australia at the 52nd Venice Biennale, 2007. In the last 20 years she has developed a practice that sees and uses art as a tool for political commentary. The Asia Pacific has been her focus, incorporating the environmental and humanitarian disasters that have impacted on the region. Norrie’s videos are predominantly metaphoric, combining art, documentary and film.
