Susan Hiller‘s installation ‘Channels’ at Matt’s Gallery, London (2013)

In ‘Channels’, Hiller uses audio accounts in many languages from people who believe they have experienced death as the raw materials for her new work. Vivid stories of those who believe they have died and returned to tell the tale constitute a remarkable contemporary archive, whether the accounts are regarded as metaphors, misperceptions, myths, delusions or truth.
