Her artistic practice is rooted in the study of embodied knowledge, the history of a female voice and ecology. She strives to interrogate existing concepts and categorisations perpetuating forms of oppression by actively listening and decomposing as a methodology for transformation.
“I like to think of my works as fungi, the catalysts of the toxicities defining our current moment.”
She understands her artistic practice as a space of radical imagination of queer ways of living, becoming and relating.

"on the evening of the 8th of November, the voids and fillings of Hilde Onis occupied the spaces of het resort, both mentally and physically through a conversation with Klaudija Ylaite, our guide through the exchange of ideas in this new series studium resort.
Hilde Onis shapes spaces, sometimes filling gaps and other times embracing them with her works. primarily focused on ceramics, as she feels a special ability to create it, she turns her liquid ideas into stone, oscillating between the in-between spaces." (...) read more.
about Hilde Onis (1994) lives and works in Rotterdam. Her work is expressed in amalgams of sculpture, installations, video work and textual interventions. It is created in an intensive studio practice where, research, sculpting and writing exist simultaneously. The work explores issues of interdependence, how precarious things are and how objects and meanings can lean on each other. The installations are often tailored to the exhibition space. They search for a form in which a visitor can approach all the information presented as a reading of the space and grammar of the body to the world of objects and underlying meanings they contain. Conversely, Hilde uses written text in exhibitions. These texts give the opportunity to be read as stand-alone poems, but also as enigmatic references to what can be seen physically. Next to the usage of text in installations, Hilde writes independent poetry and prose.
