Item description for Thomas Demand: Catalogue Serpentine Gallery London by Beatriz Colomina...

Thomas Demand: Catalogue Serpentine Gallery London

Thomas Demand is one of the most celebrated contemporary photo artists. At first sight, Demand's pictures, say of a kitchen, an elevator, or a car park, seem like depictions of everyday places. Yet on closer inspection they turn out to be reconstructions of reality: Demand creates life-size environments made of paper and cardboard and accurate down to the smallest details, photographs these "re-creations" and then destroys them. The pictures that arise in this way put their finger squarely on the drab aesthetics of the modern office world and architecture. Demand's sculptural and somehow filmic simulations, completely devoid of people, lead us into a world of models, in which a "faked" reality blends with the memory of a real reality to generate vividly cool images and to investigate the concept of virtual reality that plays such a key role in our technological multimedia age.

Reviews - What do customers think about Thomas Demand: Catalogue Serpentine Gallery London?

Saw this exhibition direct  Oct 18, 2006
I actually saw this exhibition this summer at the Serpentine in London. Needless to say it was fantastic to see his work in person, huge extremely glossy images, as well as a film. I didnt have the money for the monograph, which includes the custom woodblock printed wallpaper he had made specifically for this exhibition (not sure if it comes in this edition though, it was certainly in the copy at the Serpintine), but I did pick up a fun pack for 1 pound which included a 6x6" square of the wallpaper. The August issue of Wallpaper* magazine has the article of the exhibition as well.

If you have the money, pick this up as it will appreciate.
