Marking the occasion of Didier Vermeiren’s eponymous solo exhibition at WIELS in Brussels, this book illuminates the recurrent strategies of repetition, reversal, doubling and inversion that the artist explores in his work
Published to mark the occasion of Didier Vermeiren’s (b. 1951) eponymous solo exhibition at WIELS in Brussels, Double Exposition takes its name from a photograph by Vermeiren that refers to its own double exposure ("exposition" in French, which also translates as "exhibition"). The title thus evokes the recurrent strategies of repetition, reversal, doubling, and inversion that Vermeiren explores in his work.
Conceived by the artist and containing a rich array of his striking photographs, this book also features an in-depth analysis of Vermeiren’s most recent sculptures written by long-term commentator on his practice, Michel Gauthier; an essay on the central role of photography in his studio practice by Susana Gállego-Cuesta; and a look at the shifts and continuities in his oeuvre over the past four decades by the exhibition’s curator, Zoë Gray.
