Elizabeth Burmann Littin, Santiago, Chile 1992.

༘ 2020 Sculpture MFA Rhode Island School of Design.

༘ 2015 BFA Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

Artist based in Santiago, Chile, working primarily with installations,  intervention, and interdisciplinary research. Holds an MFA in Sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design (2020) and a BFA in Fine Arts from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (2015). She is interested in the reactions and forms of decay that emerge from the encounters between nature, industry, bodies, and environs. Exploring the materiality of these relationships, she intertwines knowledge from biology, cooking, crafts, along with the application of traditional techniques such as glass and metalwork. Her installations aim to dissolve the normative view of nature and the hierarchies that disentangle human productions from ecology, generating attention towards non-dominant materialities and thus revealing other dimensions and possibilities of coexistence.

Her work has been exhibited in various spaces and museums such as the RISD Museum, Providence, Rhode Island, Museum of Contemporary Art, Santiago de Chile, CCU Gallery, Santiago de Chile, Museum of Visual Arts, Santiago de Chile, Galeria Patricia Ready, Santiago de Chile, Local Arte Contemporáneo Santiago de Chile, among others. Alongside her studio practice, she has developed a profound sense of research, and her recent article on the oceanic turn and material feminism was published in the latest issue of Feminist Review, United Kingdom (2022), titled 'Oceans'. Her current practice delves into the study of aqueous materialities as entities that flow, erode, and nourish, undoing the rigid categorizations of human and nature.
