Press Release OBLONG
3-27 JUNE 2010
PRIVATE VIEW 2 JUNE 6-9PM
Miniscule could be regarded as a bijou sociological experiment. It is a Fine Arts exhibition in the sumptuously grandiose Oblong gallery, where up to 200 Object d’Art can be shown simultaneously. Artists across London, Britain and the world have been invited to submit a diminutive object of any genre or media with but one simple proviso: max. size is of the common matchbox - 2” by 1.5”.
Thinking small is a unique challenge, and although there many artists who specialize in the miniature, or consider it part of their normal output, most invitees will find this an intriguing change from normal practice. We can expect a very diverse show with an interesting selection of artists; a toy box destruction derby of high concept in abject competition, a kaleidoscopic cross-cut of current making and thinking, but set in an arena of equality.
Is an object to be judged by its size? Can we say that the London Eye has had more impact on the world than a bicycle wheel? This show will be going against the grain by championing the miniature, so it will be up to the audience to decide whether less really is more…
