Elizabeth Burmann Littin


Elizabeth Burmann Littin (Chile). Artist based in Santiago, Chile, she holds a Master's degree in Sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design (2020) and a Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (2015).

She is interested in the exchanges, transformations and forms of deterioration that arise from the encounters between nature, culture, bodies and environment. Exploring the materiality of these relationships, she conducts interdisciplinary research combining practices such as biology, cooking, handicrafts, together with the field of environmental humanities and feminist materialism studies.

With her installations and research she generates links with non-dominant materialities, in an attempt to dissolve the hierarchies that support the separation between environment and human production. Her work has been exhibited in various spaces and museums such as the RISD Museum, Providence, Rhode Island, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago de Chile, Sala CCU, Santiago de Chile, Museo de Artes Visuales, Santiago de Chile, Local Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago de Chile, among others.

Part of her current research was included in the new publication of the journal Feminist Review "Oceans", dedicated to the study of imperceptible phenomena of environmental impact, with special attention to planktonic organisms, crustaceans and mollusks.

With the support of the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage of Chile and the Directorate of Cultural Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile.
