Composition Trouvée (à l'affiche / prochainement)

Guillaume Bijl


Installation, 100 x 180 x 6 cm.
Materials: mixed media

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK6136).

An example of a Composition trouvée are these two display cases with posters and photos from old films from 1993. In contrast to Bijl's Transformation Installations, only a piece of reality is shown here. It concerns consciously composed recognisable compositions that do not attempt to evoke a complete set. Not just ordinary objects are shown here, but also the display of those objects is shown (the display cases). The photos and posters are therefore not taken out of their familiar context, the artist also shows (part of) the decor. This leads to a reconstruction of highly recognisable forms of presentation.
