Didier Vermeiren (born 1951 in Brussels, where he lives and works) belongs to a generation of artists who, since the 1970s, has been drawing on the legacy of conceptual art and minimalism. Vermeiren has been occupied with the history and specific nature of sculpture since the 1970s, more specifically the plinth. The fraught relationship between sculpture and pedestal is often viewed as a metaphor for the correlation of sculpture and reality—with Vermeiren subscribing to Brancusi's belief that the plinth is integral to the work.
