Demand in Sydney

German artist Thomas Demand

Thomas Demand is creating a major new installation inside a Harry Seidler designed building in Sydney’s inner city.  Renowned for creating and photographing painstakingly fabricated environments constructed from paper and cardboard, The Dailies (presented by Kaldor Public Art Projects) will see Demand create a unique architectural setting upon which to install a new series of works.

In recent years Demand has increasingly explored unconventional exhibition models, custom designing wallpaper for his show at the Serpentine in 2006 and installing swathes of curtaining for his exhibition at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin (2009-2010) and The Dailies is no exception. The installation’s experimental backdrop will be complemented by a short story written by American author Louis Begley and a signature scent, provided by Miuccia Prada no less.
