The videos and installations of the artist duo Vermeir & Heiremans investigate the complex relationship between economy, spatiality, and social reality in today’s highly globalized world. Focusing on the mechanisms of financial structures and the ways in which they produce and generate cultural processes, the duo raises questions about the ever-growing entanglement between urban development, financialisation, and governing. The artists employ financial tools, historical references, technology, and cinematic language to reflect on social codes as well as on the production of value in today’s artistic and non-artistic realms. Vermeir & Heiremans have presented their work (inter)nationally o.a. at the 10th Istanbul Biennial (2007), Arnolfini, Bristol (2009), Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin (2010), Viennale, Vienna (2011), 7th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennial (2012), Manifesta 9, Limburg (2012), Argos, Brussels (2012), Extra City, Antwerp (2012), Riga Art Space (2013), 13th Istanbul Biennale (2013), Stroom, Den Haag (2014), Rotwand Gallery, Zurich (2014), Triennale Brugge (2015), Dojima River Biennale, Osaka (2015), Curated by_Vienna at Georg Kargl Gallery (2015), Transmediale, Berlin (2016), Bucharest Biennale 7 (2016), Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin (2017), Glassyard Gallery, Budapest (2018), Art Brussels, (2018), The Atlantic Project, Plymouth (2018), Pump House Gallery, London (2018).
