Hilarius Hofstede (Hilversum, NL,1965) is a multimedia artist who explores tensions between representations of culture and nature in his works on paper, assemblages and texts. His masterfully collaged, pastiched, and bricolaged renderings of primal and animal forms are in many museums and private collections and regularly feature in the collaborative installations at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 1999 and in 2012 at the Musée de la Chasse in Paris to the recent traveling Bison Caravan. Hofstede studied at the film academy Ecole Supérieure de Cinéastes in Paris in 1985 and then followed a personal trajectory exhibiting in major European art centers. He currently lives and works in Amsterdam.
