about this work

Sharon Van Overmeiren made this work within the context of her Pop Cycles Billboard Series – referencing the visual language of traditional ice cream & popsicle advertisements. For this edition, Van Overmeiren developped the three sculptural props used on the Billboard Series into autonomous (wall) sculptures. While the shapes of these sculptures definetly reference popsicles, Van Overmeiren immediatly distorts this reading by adding historical references to the shapes. This Rocket, for example, refers strongly in form to Anubis, an Ancient Egyptian god of death who is traditionally represented as a jackal or a person with the head of a jackal. 

about Sharon Van Overmeiren

The work of Sharon Van Overmeiren reflects on the images with which we surround ourselves. She thinks about how a specific image or a complete visual language is created, how the forms become bearers of meaning, and how this meaning changes - through time or through different cultures.

In concrete terms, this means that she creates new, composite images that are made up of a multitude of references. Van Overmeiren's sources and references are extremely broad and cover both high and low culture: from cartoons to pre-Columbian motifs, from museum scenography to Pokémon. The images Van Overmeiren creates are literally layered, and the relationship between all the different layers of images constantly evokes new meanings.

Sharon Van Overmeiren resided as an artist in Jan Van Eyck, Maastricht and Wiels, Brussels. She has shown her work at solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad, including Extra City, Antwerp: Damien & the Love Guru, Brussels; Kunsthal KadE, Amersfoort; M UHKA, Antwerp; Wiels, Brussels;
