Hilde Onis

Hilde Onis’s (1994) work is expressed in amalgams of sculpture, installation, video work, and textual interventions with an often poetic approach. The work is formed in an intensive studio practice where reading, testing, investigating the pace of material, sculpting and writing are boiling simultaneously. The work plays with the characters of trivial objects, questioning our daily reality subsequently materialized in physical forms and solid metaphors. Referring to language systems and transforming object and material hierarchies, the work tries to expose underlying structures of human assumptions and constructed semiotic agreements. Much of the work plays with the power of suggestion and centers on the idea of contingency, the idea that things only act when they are needed, holding some kind of dormant potential energy until requested.
Recognizable objects and physical metaphors play a refined game for attention and expose the interconnectedness and dependence of things. The dense installations compel each work to be each others neighbor and creates room for an everlasting dialogue, balancing on meaning, like thought processes that mark no end or beginning.



Hilde Onis finished a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture in 2015 at the AKI Academy of Arts in Enschede, the Netherlands. In 2020, Hilde obtained a Master of Fine Arts at KASK, Gent, Belgium. The current practice includes sculptures, installations, videos and textual interventions.
