Susan Norrie

Born 1953, Sydney. Lives and works Sydney.


Susan Norrie’s practice encompasses photography, painting, filmmaking and multimedia installations. Norrie originally trained as a painter at the National Art School, Sydney and the National Gallery School, Melbourne in the 1970s, shifting towards film and installation in the mid-1990s. Norrie’s videos are predominantly metaphoric, combining art, documentary and film.

 Norrie represented Australia at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. In the last 20 years she has developed a practice that sees and uses art as a tool for political commentary. The Asia-Pacific has been her focus, incorporating the environmental and humanitarian disasters that have impacted on the region.

Norrie’s selected solo exhibitions include HAVOC, Venice Biennale, Palazzo Giustinian Lolin, Venice (2007); Black Wind, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, Adelaide Festival (2006); Undertow, Gus Fisher Gallery, University of Auckland, New Zealand (2004); and Thermostat, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland (2001).
