In Spring 2022 the Bluecoat, Liverpool will present the largest overview to date of Suki Chan’s multi-platform project CONSCIOUS. Suki Chan (UK/HK), b.1977, is an critically-acclaimed artist and filmmaker whose work uses moving image, photography, and sound to explore our perception of reality.
CONSCIOUS brings together the diverse, subjective perspectives of scientists and ordinary people, whose multi-layered stories shake up our preconceptions about individual and collective consciousness. Within her wider study of consciousness and perception, the artist explores how memory loss destabilises our understanding of the present, while opening up other possible realities through her close collaborations with people living with dementia.
