Internationally renowned German artist Thomas Demand will present the 25th Kaldor Public Art Project in March 2012. Demand will transform a unique architectural site in the centre of Sydney to present his new works and project The Dailies. This work will be the artist's first public art project working outside a museum environment.
Demand describes his new works as “just a glimpse that starts to create a narrative”, sometimes only by coincidence, “as if time stood still or as if it were the centre of the galaxy”. The project will include collaborations with Miuccia Prada, who has contributed a unique scent for this new environment, and US author Louis Begley (novels include: ‘Wartime Lies’, ‘The Man Who Was Late’ and ‘About Schmidt’) who has developed a short story for the installation.
Thomas Demand has participated in the Shanghai Biennale (2006), the Venice Biennale (2005), and represented Germany in the Sao Paulo Biennale (2004); his solo exhibitions have included a mid-career retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2005) and most recently, an extensive solo show was presented at Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie (2009-2010) amongst many others; group shows include Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Modern, London; and Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt amongst many other major international museums.
