The logos, symbols and other representations of post-capitalist aesthetics are the centre of Dutch artist Marc BIJL's work. Using the most appropriate medium for each situation – installations, sculptures, videos, (often illegal) public interventions, posters, stickers etc. – he formulates his own iconoclastic and subversive aesthetics, influenced by punk and goth subcultures.
Marc BIJL questions symbols of power – either political, religious or commercial – as well as those of protest movements, to demonstrate their archetypes and stakes, playing them off of each other. Through a re-contextualisation of these simplified signs of complex power structures, he underlines their paradoxes, not hesitating at the same time to deconstruct his own language of subversion.
