Head over to The Wall Street Journal today for a fun interview with Thomas Demand, in which he discusses Matisse and reveals that he’ll soon open a new studio in Berlin that he will share with Tacita Dean and Thomas Scheibitz.

The throwaway quote at the end is not so surprising, given the artist’s work, but enjoyable off-topic all the same:

“On a long-distance flight, I recently watched “The Lego Movie.” It was the only film screened that I had not seen yet. It was very innovative. I first thought it was merchandising financed and commissioned by Lego. But no, it was not.”

If you say so, Thomas Demand! Read more at The Wall Street Journal.
