“Small Finds” in archaeology are finds usually no bigger than the palm of the hand. They are difficult to find but quite revealing in terms of exploring the historical and cultural context of a find spot. In the routine of digging a great amount of dismantled earth has to be sifted in order to discover the tiny, sealed earthen closures, pearls, marbles, coins or tools of every day life.

This exhibition wants to direct the attention to the phenomenon of tyniness in drawing. Essential qualities of a drawing come from the small. Moreover, the small or sometimes the sparsity in drawing  corresponds to the principles of anatomy – the wrist has a certain radius from which the natural size of graphical drawing evolves. So the smallness is inherent in the technique of drawing and writing as well.

There is a somewhat awful, airy-fairy search in the process of drawing- a kind of thinking with fingers. Basically, anyone can do a drawing at any time, that’s its special, connective potential.To understand a drawing, precise and persistent attention  is required. Occasionally, the beholder  is rewarded immensely- when the smallness in the mind becomes as wide and deep as the view of a landscape. The small and the poetic in the drawing have to be discovered like a small find in field archaeology and gently uncovered with the eye.

In this exhibition graphic positions are presented in opposite to tendencies staging drawing like spectacular events in size and material.The purpose is to say something about the nature and poetry of drawing.

Vernissage: Thursday, 07th April 2016, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
