Dedicated to the Unknown Artists (1972–6) @ Tate: popular postcards collected from British seaside towns captioned ‘rough sea’. Arranged according to type of image and accompanied by charts analysing the material. A tribute to the forgotten artists who painted, photographed or hand-tinted the images. The artist describes herself as a curator, presenting an exhibition of these overlooked cultural materials.”

From the Freud Museum (1994-1996) @ Tate:  an installation generally exhibited as a single vitrine in which fifty archive boxes are displayed on two shelves, with their lids open, revealing a broad range of small artefacts. Each box is numbered and given a title corresponding to its contents. Many of the items included in Hiller’s installation are ephemeral, everyday articles. Others are objects of historical and anthropological significance.
