A little doco about a Thomas Demand exhibition occupying a whole floor of the hotel at the Harry Seidler designed MLC Centre in Sydney. Such a great concept and a great use of space. I’m quite annoyed I missed it. I like how he talks about his process with the body of work, The Dailies.
I love this photograph by John Gollings of James Turrell’s installation, Skyspace. Interestingly, Gollings is also a sculptor, and has a piece on Herring Island, Falling Fence, which I visited just recently. I had seen the piece before and knew his work as a photographer, but hadn’t connected the two until much later.
The award-winning photographer Fan Ho spent many years capturing the grit, congestion and vibrancy of mid-Twentieth Century Hong Kong. A selection of his photos have been on display at San Francisco International Airport’s Terminal 2, though apparently they’ll come down at the end of the month, so there are just a few days left to see them. Not to worry, though, as later this year, Modernbook Editions will publish the third in its Fan Ho monographs, “Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir.” As you can see below, the photographs are uniformly breathtaking in how they play with light to portray the distinctly narrow verticality of the city.
