Channels by London-based British/American artist Susan Hiller (b. Tallahassee, Florida, USA, 1940) is on show at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, Denmark (15 Nov 2014 - 5 Mar 2015).

The expansive audio-sculptural installation comprises disembodied voices reporting on so called near-death experiences. The work presents audio accounts in multiple languages from people who believe they have experienced death and returned to life. 

"Channels is an artwork designed to engage us in a consideration of some of the gaps and contradictions in our modern belief system and collective, cultural life. It is a destabilising aesthetic device opening to the unrepresentable." (Susan Hiller)
