Guillaume bijl °1946, Antwerp, Belgium
Allmost all my compositions are called ‘Composition Trouvée’. The term alludes to the existing term ‘Object Trouvée’, in the sense that each of these is a consciously compiled and recognizable composition – a previeously existing, found one, ‘so to speak’. They are chuncks of reality that vary from trivial consumption and interior fragments to pseudo-public manifestation décors.
In general, I wish to regard them as present-day, archeological still lifes.(G. Bijl)
