Susan Merrick is a multi-disciplinary Artist. She is interested in conversations, access, language and power, in questioning whose voices are heard, and in the access and spaces that can challenge or facilitate this.
With a background in BSL/English Interpreting and Sociology she makes work, projects and collaborations exploring these themes, utilising a context-based mix of social engagement, live art, public installations, film making, collections and documentation.
Susan graduated from UCA Farnham with an MA Fine Art (Distinction) and has exhibited nationally and internationally. She has performed at Colchester Arts Centre, Toynbee Studios and Leydon Gallery and her residencies have included the National Archives, Platform 1 Gallery, Floating Island Gallery and Chapel Arts Studios. She has been awarded project grants from Arts Council England for 2017, 2018 and 2019. This was to run her project Statements in Semaphore, a three year project which aimed to explore how socially engaged research can offer ways to access voices of hidden women whilst also benefiting the artists and the organisations that they work with.
