Susan Norrie is a Sydney-based artist who has developed a practice which utilises art, documentary and film genres. Her projects are concerned with the environment, human rights and survival.

In 2007 Norrie represented Australia at the 52nd Venice Biennale with a 16 channel video installation, HAVOC, which was based on the Lusi Mud Volcano, in East Java, Indonesia. Norrie returned to Indonesia in 2016 to document the “ aftermath" of the mud volcano on the people and their land.

Norrie continues her concerns about oil and gas mining through her work with Professor Masato Iguchi, Disaster Prevention Institute at Kyoto University and Director of the Sakurajima Volcano Research Center in Kagoshima, Japan. Masato Iguchi is a volcanologist who has also worked extensively in Indonesia with the impact of volcanic eruptions on local communities.

Susan Norrie is speaking at Kyoto University, with Professor Masato Iguchi, May 20.
