Marc Bijl

Marc Bijl (1970)


1970, The Netherlands, lives in Berlin and Rotterdam.
Bijl uses caricatural statements as a confrontation and creates a context in which clichés come to life again. He knows how signs and images can enlighten ingrained structures of belief and power and ignores any subtlety. Bijl aims his barbs at every organised form of seeing, thinking or doing. He makes art as a flag, not to march with but to burn. He misuses in order not to become a user. The artist as mistrustful guardian of the principle of immorality. His work has been included in 2004 in such exhibitions as Good Things, MOMA, New York (USA), Channel 0, Netherlands Media Institute, Amsterdam, 20/20 Vision, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and Hit and Run, Smart Project Space, Amsterdam / Platform Garanti, Istanbul.
