MINISCULE

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 although many artists specialize in the miniature or considers it
part of their normal output most invitees will find this an intriguing challenge from normal practice.

So we can expect a very diverse show with many new and strange artists, a toy box destruction
derby of high concept in abject competition, a kaleidoscope cross cut of current making and thinking
but one set in an equal arena, although admittedly it may be slightly biased towards the ‘less is
more camp’.

So, is an object to be judged by its size? Can we say that the London Eye has more impact on the
art world than a bicycle wheel? Well this is the weenie wheel, so it has got to be better right?
