Hilde Overbergh (°1964, BE) is a Belgian artist, mainly known for her paintings and painterly installations. When she was 19 years old, standing on the corner of Bryant street and 15th street in San Francisco, she took a view on The Vats, an abandoned building in complete decay and a rehearsal space and crash pad to the local punk scene. The energy intrigued her. All this destruction and freedom was there for her to feed upon and to develop her artistic career. In her early large-scale paintings, she already included discarded and found materials from dumpsters and construction-sites. As her work developed the play with painting, objects and space became more apparent. Today Overbergh creates a world where paint, color and installations tell us stories about relations, construction and deconstruction. Actions such as folding, cutting, attaching and arranging give structure to her observations and act as inspiration and working method. She creates a tangible reality that lies in painting itself and in her choice of materials. The artist explores the formal aspects beyond the boundaries of the frame. In creating her artworks, she embraces the beauty in the useless materials that she collects during her travels and residencies to various places around the world like the USA, Iran, Portugal and Berlin. Other sources of inspiration are registrations of trivial constructions and situations her gaze falls upon. Spilled Milk will present the first comprehensive selection of work from the past eight years. Richly illustrated and with essays focusing on specific aspects, Spilled Milk will give an inside view on the artist’s wide range of working strategies.
