“Existing in a state of continual motion, from the hotel room to the road, the life of the travelling salesman, the commercial traveller, is experienced as a perpetual passenger, punctuated by both the shifting of place and the marking of time.” Thomas Demand’s delicate and beautiful work uses carefully constructed paper and card sculptures, which he photographs and then destroys, creating a series of “simple fragments strung together to inspire reflection”.
