Susan Morris:

Susan Morris (b. 1962, Birmingham, UK) lives and works in London. Studied at Goldsmiths’ College (MA), and Central St Martins (PhD - On the Blank: Photography, Writing, Drawing, 2007). Morris uses scientific or medical devices worn on the body to explore automatic or ‘involuntary’ mark making. In 2010 she was awarded a Wellcome Trust grant to make new work for the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. This has developed into a large series of tapestries woven directly from data tracking her sleep/ wake patterns over a period of five years, that will form part of her solo exhibition at CentrePasquArt, Switzerland, in 2016. Morris is also showing a tapestry at Ormston House Gallery Ireland, in July this year, for the group show Compression. Exhibitions since 2012 include La Collection Impossible, Fondation Fernet-Branca à Saint-Louis, France; Whisper Down the Lane, Gallery 400, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA; Motion Capture: Drawing and the Moving Image in Contemporary Art, Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Cork and the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Ireland, and Susan Morris: Untitled Motion Capture Drawings, Art Exchange, University of Essex and London Gallery West, London.
