Biography

Susan Supercharged is an Artist who grew up in the exciting and precarious East Village Art Scene of the 1980’s. She studied at The Arts Students League and Stella Adler acting studios. Susan Supercharged appeared in one of the last projects at the Factory, the MTV series, Andy Warhol’s 15 Minutes. In New York Susan worked as a Fashion model where she was known for filming with her Super 8 camera as she went down the runway. These films have are in the archives of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Susan Supercharged considers these films to be part of her performance art, and a significant part of her collaged life narrative.
Susan relocated to London in 1997, forming an Art Collective called “ United Aliens.. She explores questions of distorted identity creating tension and fragility, through slashing, cutting, ripping then painting and filming the results.Technology is added to form her alter ego’s “lifecodes” ,and a language to navigate the world through. Susan Supercharged creates signifiers where the recognised becomes unknown through the experimentation of the (often) commercialised image. She often combines all these elements to form site mutative installations.

Project

I would present my room as a totally immersive installation piece, it would be similar my " Unbearable Automaticity of Being" piece. It will an space ship with me inside, perhaps performing. I tend to create denying on the environment. Having worked for many years as a professional set builder and as a Creative Fine Artist, I will bring these skills to the room. I will also create a film which will be a surreal delight and projected within the environment on a portable projector and / or TV. I work on sets and installations so I can easily dress a room to completely immerse the viewer within the experience. I have also built sets for 3 productions of the award winning theatre you, me bum bum train, and I am very confident I can create an exciting room. That will be a Fine Art installation of the highest quality, but one which will intrigue and delight the viewer.
