Over the past two years, Thomas Demand has spent many hours in the Tokyo offices of renowned architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, or SANAA, observing their working processes. The result is a new series of large-scale close-up photographs that has its origins in 2011, when Demand came across the models of architect John Lautner, stored in the Getty Archive, Los Angeles.

Review of Mary Kelly, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery
Circa 1968 is the lynchpin of this exhibition. Made for the 2004 Whitney Biennale, it uses an image taken by Jean-Pierre Rey from Life magazine, 1968, in which Caroline de Bendern hoists the Vietnamese flag in a zeal reminiscent of Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People.
