Miniscule Part 2 could be regarded as a bijou sociological experiment; over 220 artists submit a diminutive art object of any genre or media but with one simple proviso: the maximum size of the work is that of the common matchbox; 2” by 1.5”.

About

Thinking small and making small is a unique position and while some artists specialise in the miniature or reductive ideas and might consider it a regular part of their creative output, many more do not. For most of the artists participating in Miniscule Part 2, the format is an intriguing challenge; a stimulus or provocation; potentially a playful distraction from their standard artistic practice. The exhibition includes established and upcoming artists from the UK and around the world.

This diverse exhibition presents carefully considered, imaginative but seriously tiny, fragile art objects – an exquisite mass of breeding minisculism. As curator Vanya Balogh describes “Here we will find 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 biased towards the ‘less is more’ camp. Is an object to be judged by its size? Does size really matter? Can we say that the London Eye has more impact on the art world than a bicycle wheel?”

Miniscule Part 2 is a sequel to the exhibition Miniscule curated and devised by artists Vanya Balogh and Jim Racine, and presented at Oblong Gallery, London in June 2010.
