Entitled Modern Experiments the exhibition is said to form a unique and significant body of material which explores concepts not always fully explained through mainstream scientific or psychological study, including paranormal phenomena, mediumship, ectoplasm, x-ray vision and telepathy.

The compelling and thought-provoking exhibition, which will tour an additional three key arts venues across Ireland in 2017, runs until November 26.

Susan said: “Using video, photography and installation my work examines vision and perception, and reality and illusion through my explorations of obscure histories and cases of perceptual and paranormal phenomena.

“I’ve been very interested in ideas of perceptual phenomena of ideas about vision and perception and belief. So some of the subject matter that the work explores and investigates would be x-ray vision, telepathy, paranormal experiences, ectoplasm and the work evolves from my work with some immediate people within those fields.”
