Susan Norrie lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Since the 1990s Susan Norrie has revealed the complicity between the global media and the selling of news and draws attention to the manipulation of images in a highly bureaucratic, exclusive institutional system that is intolerant to difference. Her practice is informed by the relationship between political, socio-economic, environmental issues and technological change, combining art/documentary and film genres. Progressively digital technology has become the most cogent way for her to realise the complexity of her projects.
Projects have been presented at Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki 2001; ICC Intercommunication Center, Tokyo 2003; MARCO, Museo de Arte Contemporanea de Vigo, Spain 2007; ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe 2008; the Edinburgh International Festival 2009, Yokohama Triennale 2011, Gemeentesmuseum Den Haag 2013; Biennale of Sydney 2014; Montreal Biennale, 2014 - 2015. She represented Australia at the 52nd Venice Biennale, 2007.
In 2016 Susan was commissioned by the Australian War Memorial Museum and deployed to Camp Taji, Iraq.
