• Biography

     

    Harm van den Berg (1970) is an artist who lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He received his BA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 1996. As a sound artist he investigated for ten years the boundaries between image and language in different forms of representation like film, musical performances, installations and CD's. In recent years, his work gradually shifted from audio works to painting and video. From mainly mental and aural landscapes to landscapes that are visually more defined. He has performed at venues including The Paviljoens in Almere (NL), Zoo Gallery, Nantes (FR), Galeria Klovicevi, Zagreb (HR) and the Crossing Border Festival, Amsterdam (NL). His work is shown at venues including Goethe Institute Amsterdam, Netherlands Media Art Institute, W139, Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam, De Voorkamer, Lier (B) and AC Institute, New York City (USA) He has received grants from the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.

     

     

    Harm van den Berg (1970) studeerde aan de Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, afdeling voorheen audiovisueel. Als geluidskunstenaar onderzocht hij tien jaar lang de grenzen tussen taal, beeld en ruimte. Hiervoor gebruikte hij diverse media, zoals film, muzikale performances, installaties en Cdʼs. De afgelopen jaren is zijn werkterrein verschoven van geluidskunst naar schilderkunst, van primair mentale en auditieve landschappen, naar landschappen die visueel in sterkere mate zijn gedefinieerd. Zijn werk is getoond in o.a. Museum De Paviljoens in Almere (NL), Zoo Gallery, Nantes (FR), Galeria Klovicevi, Zagreb (HR), Nederland Instituut voor Mediakunst (NL), W139 (NL), De Voorkamer, Lier (B) en AC Institute, New York City (USA). Harm van den Berg woont en werkt in Amsterdam.
