Victoria Miro presents the first solo exhibition in the UK of paintings by Ilse D’Hollander.
In her short life, Ilse D’Hollander (1968–1997) created an intelligent, sensual and highly resonant body of work that continues to find receptive new audiences in the decades since her death. This exhibition, the gallery’s first solo presentation of D’Hollander’s work since announcing its representation of the artist’s estate, focuses on the rich dialogue between abstraction and representation in her work, giving special attention to the ways in which she coaxed evocations of place, light and weather into her modestly-scaled canvases and works on cardboard.
Ilse D’Hollander, a film by Gautier Deblonde
A new film by Gautier Deblonde shot on location in Paulatem, Ilse D’Hollander’s home between 1995 and 1997, Galerie In Den Bouw, Kalken, the venue of the artist’s first and only solo exhibition during her lifetime, and the Zwalm countryside, summer 2018. Produced on the occasion of the first solo exhibition in the UK of works by the late Belgian artist, the film features a rare text written by D'Hollander, read by the Belgian actor Francesca Vanthielen.
