Suzanne Treister (b.1958, London) lives and works in London. Studied at St Martin's School of Art, London (1978-1981) and Chelsea College of Art and Design, London (1981-1982). By utilising various media, including video, the internet, interactive technologies, photography, drawing and watercolour, Treister engages with eccentric narratives and unconventional bodies of research to reveal structures that bind power, identity and knowledge. Often spanning several years, her projects comprise reinterpretations of given taxonomies and histories that examine the existence of covert, unseen forces at work in the world, whether corporate, military or paranormal.
