Artist Statement

Suzanne Treister was born in 1958 in London, United Kingdom, where she currently lives and works. Initially recognized in the 1980s as a painter, she became a pioneer in the digital/new media/web based field from the beginning of the 1990s. Treister has since evolved a large body of work that encompasses drawing, video, installation and photography. Her practice engages with eccentric narratives and unconventional bodies of research, such as alchemy, extrasensory perception and conspiracy theory, which she relies on to reveal the structures that bind power, identity and knowledge. Often spanning several years, her projects comprise fantastic reinterpretations of given taxonomies that suggest the existence of surreptitious, unseen forces at work in the world, whether corporate, military or paranormal. A number of Treisters’s projects including “Hexen 2039” (2006) and “Vesna” (2006) involve her alter ego and avatar Rosalind Brodsky, a delusional woman living between 1970 and 2058 who believes herself capable of time travel and of working at a fictional top-secret governmental organization called the Institute of Militronics and Advanced Time Interventionality (IMATI).
