Thomas Demand at M MuseumM Museum, Leuven October 9, 2020 – April 18, 2021 www.mleuven.be
House of Card offers an overview of various approaches to construction in Thomas Demand’s oeuvre from the past fifteen years. His work related to models, scenography and even buildings are closely related to architecture. At the same time House of Card shows the connection between Demand’s projects and those of other influential artists, architects and designers like Martin Boyce, Arno Brandlhuber, Caruso St John en Rirkrit Tiravanija.
The title House of Card refers to the precariousness of Demand's practice as a builder. Whereas architecture generally equates with permanence, Demand prefers to explore the limits of the ephemeral, as is evidenced in his use of paper and cardboard.
