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?
