Susan Aldworth is a visual artist who lives and works in London. She has a background in philosophy, and a strong interest in investigating the workings of the human mind, especially consciousness and our sense of self. Working as an artist-inresidence in a medical or academic setting is central to Aldworth’s practice – she has collaborated with scientists, clinicians and philosophers to investigate the many narratives of epilepsy, schizophrenia and consciousness in her explorations into what it means to be human. Her research into the narratives of sleep during her recent residency at the University of York have culminated in two exhibitions in York - The Dark Self at York St Mary’s and The Art of Sleep at Lotte Inch Gallery in June 2017.
Aldworth has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally most recently in Realisations at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and Susan Aldworth: The Portrait Anatomised at The National Portrait Gallery in London.

Her work is held in many public and private collections including the V&A, the British Museum, The Fitzwilliam Museum, The Wellcome Collection Library and Williams College Museum of Contemporary Art, USA.
