Susan Philipsz

National Galleries: Sound in Space
February 2, 2018

Susan Philipsz doesn’t define herself as a sound artist, but for over two decades the Turner Prize winner has pursued the notion of sound as a physical or sculptural experience. Philipsz is interested in the ways that sound and space can define and mediate one another, creating poetic and immersive installations that draw from musical, literary and historical references. In this film the artist discusses her work, and how she uses sound to respond to the unique characteristics of particular spaces.
