Guillaume Bijl's Behandelingen [Treatments] are purposeful, detailed scripts played out in both words and images; these also form the basis of Bijls' later “transformative installations”. For the Behandelingen Bijl designs a number of concrete and detailed interactive pathways that lead the visitor through the different stages of a key (but nevertheless mundane) event. For example, his treatments include a variety of topics: Church, Education, Army, Travel, Building, Ambition, Sex, Psychiatry and the 'Sleur van een alledaags Arbeidersleven' [The daily grind of the average blue-collar worker]. Bijl digs into his own personal experiences acquired during his studies and work as a source of inspiration; however, personal experience is not the only thing he draws from. He also employs the know-how he has accumulated in various fields (visual arts, literature, film and theatre).
