Artist Statement

Susan Merrick is a multi-disciplinary Artist. She is interested in conversations, language and communication, 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.

With relation to the maternal, she is researching through practice language and social support/attitudes and the power this has on maternal mental states, bodily autonomy and status.
