Thomas Demand at Matthew Marks Gallery, 1062 North Orange Grove, Los Angeles
This new exhibition focuses his camera on certain spaces occupied by persons of interest, from gangster Whitey Bulger’s patio to a reconstruction of Henri Matisse’s studio during his cut-outs phase. Exploring the dynamics of absence and presence, these large scale phorographs are a unobstrusive voyueristic study of notoriety. Ending April 4th.
