Artist talk: Thomas Demand
Artist Thomas Demand about his method, curating experience, and the works produced for the exhibition at Garage.
An artist with a very impressive exhibition history, curator, and creator of architectural projects, Thomas Demand is showing his first exhibition in Russia. Demand’s practice can be described in a variety of systems and contexts. He is an artist who has yet again reinvented photography, transformed our relationships with fact and fiction, document and imagination, memory and impression; a curator who constructs subtle and complex narratives; a monumental sculptor, an architect, a documentary photographer, a master of collaboration and interaction who pulls together the polar opposites of contemporary culture.
Demand will discuss the boundary between truth and myth, and his own various incarnations and capacities as an artist, including the Moscow one which has emerged through the exhibition Mirror Without Memory.
