Didier Vermeiren - Société des expositions du Palais des Beaux-Arts / Villa Arson 1987
Didier Vermeiren’s practice is based on repetition, reversal, doubling and inversion. The plinth is incorporated and elevated to a sculptural level: plinth on plinth, the plinth becomes sculpture, the mold becomes sculpture, the replica becomes the Original, the negative becomes the positive. These strategies are subsequently expanded to various means of production, transport and presentation.
Published on the occasion of the first retrospective about the Belgian artist, organized in 1987 between Brussels and Nice.
