ARTIST OF THE MONTH: THOMAS DEMAND
Demand works with his generation’s media memories – in paper. He builds perfect 1:1 model replicas of scenes: a kitchen, a ransacked office, a bathroom, a bus stop, all exquisitely precise but with the fine detail missing and then photographs them. The resulting large-format images are representations of locations where events occurred that form part of the social, political, cultural and historical fabric of the nation.
