Pieter Vermeersch

Pieter Vermeersch’s artistic research into painting expands beyond the confinement of the canvas. His work often consists of large spatial interventions subverting space, either conceived for exhibition spaces or adjusted to architectural contexts. Next to these immersive, painterly installations or gradient wall paintings his oeuvre includes ephemeral zero degree paintings on canvas wether or not brought back to a concrete reality by the irreversible act of scraping or by the superposition of a natural stone. These are complemented with series of photographic prints or marble pieces reactivated with a few blots of paint, a stroke of the brush or gradual color planes.
 
With representation and abstraction set as parameters, his oeuvre triggers infinitesimal perceptual experiences, which allow us to move in a sense of colour that calls into being the gap between appearance and disappearance, in which the divisions between two and three dimensional, immaterial and tangible, time and space are blurred.
 
Born in 1973 in Kortrijk, Belgium, Pieter Vermeersch lives and works between Brussels, Belgium and Turin, Italy. Since his exhibition at the S.M.A.K in Ghent 15 years ago, Pieter Vermeersch has been featured in more than 30 solo exhibitions as STUK Kunstencentrum, Leuven (2006); White Box, New York (2009); Londonewcastle Project Space, London (2011) and recently Blueproject Foundation, Barcelona (2016). His work has been shown, amongst others, in group exhibitions at S.M.A.K, Ghent (2017), Fondation Etrillard, Paris (2016); Kenopoku Festival, Japan (2016); MSK, Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent (2015); Parasol Unit, London (2015); L’Espace de l’Art Concret, Mouans- Sartoux (2015); Redcat, Los Angeles (2014); MAC’s, Grand-Hornu (2014); Logan Center Gallery, Chicago (2013); Urdaibai Arte (2012); Casino Luxembourg, Luxembourg (2011); S.M.A.K, Ghent (2010); Mu.ZEE, Ostend (2010); Kunstverein Medienturm, Graz (2009); South London Gallery, London (2009) Bozar, Brussels (2007); M HKA, Antwerp (2006).
 
Over the past two years, he has realized monumental frescoes for the Schuman station in Brussels and the Galeries Lafayette in Biarritz, as well as a major site-specifc work at Solo House Office KGDVS in Matarraña, Spain and Silos a sel, site de la Voirie, Genève, Switzerland.
