This event has ended.

Thomas Demand is one of the leading figures on the German contemporary art scene, famous for recreating political or social scenes with life-sized paper models, then photographing these to produce carefully constructed pictures that, at first glance, could almost be mistaken for the real thing, but closer inspection reveals that they contain an unnaturally uniform texture, producing a strange feeling of something being amiss. Significant places, psychological landscapes set against everyday backgrounds; Demand quietly confronts us with these in a thrilling fashion.

This exhibition will be the first in a Japanese museum to present a comprehensive view of Demand's activities, from his earliest works to his recent film pieces.

Artist Talk:
May 19th (Sat) 13:30- (Basement 2 Hall)
