Thomas Demand at PHE08

© Thomas Demand

Thomas Demand is on show at the Fundación Telefónica in Madrid as part of Photoespana 08.
On the night of the opening a large crowd was at the event including the artist. In the afternoon Demand meeting the press said: "I am not an expert in photography — I hoped nobody would find out! My work is about ideas." Thomas Demand works with pre-existing images of historical nature, which he turns into large scale paper model that he then photographs and destroys. The exhibition contains ten works from Yellowcake, images of Niger’s embassy in Rome . Also works from the series Pool, Tavern and five videos are also part of the installation.
