Lili Huston-Herterich | Biography

Lili Huston-Herterich is a Toronto-based artist with a background in photography and a practice currently rooted in multidisciplinary installation. The artist routinely employs anti-hierarchical methods of art-making; integrating craft practices, staging participatory events, and using utilitarian objects to engage bodies that share the same space. Recent exhibitions include Landfall and Departure: Epilogue (Listening to the Sea) at Naniamo Gallery (2018), We of the Middling Sort at Zalucky Contemporary (2017), Edge-Up at MAW, NY (2017), Babble On at Rockaway Topless, NY (2016) and The Mouth that Holds the Tongue at The Power Plant, Toronto (2015). She is currently working on a digital archive project Chroma Lives with design historian Erin Alexa Freedman that was previously supported as a Performance-In-Residence with Amsterdam-based organization If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution (2015-2016), as well as the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts (2016). In 2017, she participated in Access Gallery’s 23 Days At Sea residency on a freight ship, travelling from Vancouver to Shanghai across the Pacific Ocean, which culminated in a solo exhibition. Huston-Herterich received her BFA from York University in 2010 and in September 2017, commenced graduate studies at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.
