Lot description
Image size 11.75 x 11.75 in (30 x 30 cm). Accompanied by a vinyl LP ‘Memorize’ by Pan American in its original slide.
Working alongside Dusseldorf School photographers Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, and Candida Höfer, Thomas Demand creates large-scale photographs that probe the relationship between reproduction and original. Trained as a sculptor, Demand reconstructs media images of complex interior scenes using ephemeral materials like paper and cardboard. After photographing the painstakingly crafted models, which evoke or suggest recent activity yet are eerily devoid of people, Demand destroys them, leaving only photographic evidence of their fleeting existence.
