Suso Phizer is a Philadelphia based artist and social worker who makes video and performance-based artworks that document relational dynamics in the here-and-now of making the artwork. Suso is trained in social work, Internal Family Systems therapy, Psychodynamic group therapy, Tavistock Group Relations, and Psychodrama, drawing from these and other techniques for the art projects. The artworks privilege play and the unknown over healing and learning.

 

Suso has worked as an artist in Philadelphia, New York City, and St. Louis, Missouri for 13 years, and as a social worker in Philadelphia for 3 years.
