Natalie Häusler (*1983) is a Berlin based artist and poet.
““Sex,” as Häusler writes in her book-length poem ‘Corals’ (2015) “is the ecology of the poem.” When read alongside concerns in ECOLOGY – Sunrise of the Heart (2018), this rather provocative line suggests that the poem can only emerge in encounters between bodies broadly defined – in the worldly eroticism and pleasure of being-together, to and for one another, that is continually formed and transformed through language.” (Matthew Rana) She constructs physical spaces which the reader / viewer / listener and the poem inhabit together. In her work she allows for the interweaving of diverse narratives and ways of writing through the construction of these physical environments which often engage several senses at once.
Natalie Häusler holds an MFA in Painting from Bard College – Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, New York, US and an MFA in Painting and Sculpture from the University of Fine Arts Braunschweig, DE.
