Thomas Demand - ‘Clearing’ (2003), full-view and close-up
Went to a Thomas Demand talk the other day and it reminded me of some of his work. ‘Clearing’ was originally shown at the Venice Biennale in 2003. In the typical Demand fashion a photograph was recreated entirely from paper at a 1:1 scale, in this case with the use of 270,000 paper leaves. The image was then printed in large format and placed in front of that which it represents.
