23 March 2012 | In a world exclusive, internationally renowned German artist Thomas Demand will be at the helm of the 25th Kaldor Public Art Project with his photographic installation series The Dailies.

Demand, whose interest is in mass media imagery and historically poignant locales will be exhibiting his work in a public space for the first time.

For the next month, the entire floor of the Commercial Travellers’ Association at the MLC Centre in Sydney’s Martin Place will be transformed into a multi-sensuous space displaying Demand’s 15 photographic works that will be accompanied by a unique scent designed by Italian fashion house Prada.
The Dailies installation will also feature a short story composed by American novelist Louis Begley, renowned for About Schmidt.

Demand is no novice to the international stage, boasting a number of shows and retrospectives at major institutions across the world such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York and Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin.

He is a sculptor and photographer by trade who has used the age-old dye transfer technique of producing colour photography to create the works in
The Dailies. In 2006, Demand designed the wallpaper for his own exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

Thomas Demand will be in conversation at the Domain Theater at The Art Gallery of New South Wales at 5pm Friday 23 March and 2.30pm Saturday 24 March.
The Dailies will be open to the public until 22 April.
