Liselot van der Heijden produces installations, videos, objects and photographs. Recurring themes include control and power of the gaze, the tendency to objectify “the other” and “nature” as a cultural/political idea and anthropomorphic projection. Her work suggests that representations of nature reveal more about cultural, ideological, political and social frameworks than actual nature. Over the past decade, van der Heijden has exhibited at a variety of institutions throughout Europe and the United States, including the Palais de Tokyo, Musée d’art Moderne et Contemporain de Strasbourg, the Smithsonian Institution, the New Museum, Lincoln Center, and Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, among others. She is a faculty member at The College of New Jersey.
