Iris Häussler

Iris Häussler’s immersive installations revolve around fictitious stories. Beginning with detailed biographies of invented characters, she builds the material evidence of their obsessive lives and works. This results in, site-specific, unsettling environments in domestic dwellings, historical houses and in museums spaces.

Because Häussler is interested in the fragile boundaries between fiction and reality, she often does not immediately reveal that her installations are contemporary artworks.

Born in Germany and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Häussler’s work has been shown at exhibitions internationally. Häussler was a stipendiary of the Kunstfonds (Bonn) and won the Karl Hofer Prize 1999 (Berlin). Since her immigration to Canada she has received grants from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts.

She is represented by Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto.
