Hans Segers examines the formal properties of a painting. He emphasises how a painting is only a representation and presents it as an imitation of reality, ‘trompe l’oeil’, painted object and elevated art object.

References to painting and sculpture are never far away. He chooses a number of abstracted, recurring forms that evoke the thought of a cloud, tree trunk and house. They function as his image library from which he draws to refer to reality.

In the book Images Trouvées, Hans Segers collected twenty-nine shapes originally in a long concertina-shaped picture atlas, an archive of icons. Twenty-nine people from the art world in Belgium and France were invited to verbalise an image. As a result, the images in this book are enriched with new layers of meaning.

The text contributions are by: Paul Morez, Philip Aguirre, Hervé Bréhier, Koen Brams, Kasper De Vos, Nav Haq, Kathleen Weyts, Hélène Audiffren, Gwénola Ménou, Patrick Ronse, Win Van den Abbeele, Rinus Van de Velde, Lucie Renneboog, Frank Maes, Phillip Van den Bossche, Liesje Vandenbroeck, Suzanne Hetzel, Arnaud Vasseux, Kati Heck, Narcisse Tordoir, Isabelle Viallat, Inge Henneman, Pascal Neveux, Sofie Dederen, Indra Devriendt, Philippe Van Cauteren, Koen Sels, Rokus Hofstede and Xavier Noiret-Thomé.
