Nicole L’Huillier is a transdisciplinary artist from Santiago, Chile, currently based in Boston, United States. Through installations, performances, sculptures, compositions, and multiple transductions, her work explores human and non-human performativity, rituals of membranal and resonant architectures, as well as vibration and sound as construction materials for spaces, identity, and agency.
