From postal art to a visit of the muses: Susan Hiller's 'Draw Together' and 'Sisters of Menon'  Ana Eva Iribas-Rudin (Facultad de Bellas Artes, Complutense University of Madrid, Madrid, Spain)   C24

The oeuvre of the conceptual artist Susan Hiller (1940-2019) is particularly suited for an appreciation from a consciousness perspective. Pervasive subject matters in her productions are nonordinary states and unconventional ways of knowledge, including psi. This presentation deals with two specific works of her early period: Draw Together (1972), a collective, postal event intended as an informal experiment in telepathy, and Sisters of Menon (1972-1979), originated in a spontaneous episode of automatic writing while engaged in the former work, and interpreted years later.
