Exhibition / Model Studies
Thomas Demand with Fernand Léger, Francis Bruguière, Thomas Scheibitz and the Vkhutemas School.
"Model Studies is curated by and features a new body of work by artist Thomas Demand and selected works from Fernand Léger, Francis Bruguière, Thomas Scheibitz, and photos by architecture students at the Constructivist school VKhUTEMAS in Moscow. Together, the works in the exhibition dismantle a rigid, formal worldview and explore methods of representation other than realism. Seeking new ways to construct meaning, figuration and traditional forms of narrative give way to alternative approaches to making, seeing, and understanding the world. Central to this idea is the model, from its most literal to its most abstract manifestation."
