Synopsis: 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.

Book Description Schirmer/Mosel Verlag Gmbh, Germany, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Thomas Demand, 1964 in München geboren, wird nach seiner großen Retrospektive 2004 im Kunsthaus Bregenz und 2005 im wiedereröffneten Museum of Modern Art, New York, international als einer der interessantesten zeitgenössischen Photokünstler gefeiert. Sein Werk ist jedoch nur oberflächlich das eines Photographen. Auf den ersten Blick scheint es sich bei Demands Aufnahmen - etwa einer Küche, eines Copyshops oder einer Tiefgarage - um real existierende Orte zu handeln. Bei genauem Hinsehen erweisen sie sich jedoch als Rekonstruktionen der Wirklichkeit: von ihm selbst aus Papier und Karton detailgetreu nachgebaute lebensgroße Environments - hergestellt, um sie zu photographieren und wieder zu zerstören. Die so entstandenen Bilder spiegeln auf subtile Weise die graue Ästhetik moderner Verwaltung und Architektur in ihrer typischen Erscheinungsform: die Teeküche, das Büro, das Archiv, den Etagenflur, die Garage . Demands skulptural und zugleich filmisch wirkende, menschenleere Simulationen führen in die Welt der Modelle, in der eine gefälschte Realität mit der Erinnerung an die reale Realität zu eindringlich kühlen Bildern verschmilzt. Mit der Künstlichkeit seiner Bilder nimmt Demand einen neuen virtuellen Realitätsbegriff ins Visier, der für unsere technologisierte und mediatisierte Zeit signifikant ist. Unser zweites Buch zum Werk von Thomas Demand begleitet eine Ausstellung in der renommierten Serpentine Gallery, London, die am 5. Juni eröffnet. Bookseller Inventory # ART9783829602495
