Liselot van der Heijden

Fine Art and Lens-Based Art Coordinator

Liselot van der Heijden produces installations, videos and photographs. Recurring themes in van der Heijden’s works are control and power of the gaze and ‘Nature’ as a cultural/political idea and anthropomorphic projection. Her work suggests that representations of nature reveal more about human beings, culture and ideology, than about nature itself.

Over the past decade, van der Heijden has exhibited at various institutions throughout the US and Europe. Recently her work was shown at the New Museum and the Queens Museum in New York, Smart Project Space in Amsterdam, Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, ZKM Zentrum fur Medien Technologie in Karlsruhe and Videonale 8 in Bonn, Germany. In New York City she has shown works at the Brooklyn Museum, Lincoln Center, Exit Art, Artist Space, Art in General, Schroeder Romero, Thomas Erben Gallery, White Box, and Momenta Art among other venues.

Liselot van der Heijden received a fellowship from the Civitella Ranieri Foundation and numerous residencies from the Experimental Television Center. She has a BFA from the Cooper Union and a MFA from Hunter College. Van der Heijden has lectured on her work in several venues such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University and Montserrat College of Art. She is one of the organizers of Nomads and Residents.

Liselot van der Heijden was born in Haarlem, the Netherlands and lives and works in New York City.
