Miniature is a matter of perspective. When you look at the small it is not about centimeters but about relations, references, and a special way of seeing. Miniatures can be representatives. The small forces us to take a close look. The miniature is an experimental space and a projecting surface. In his Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard called miniatures „happy spaces“ in which the world is a handy reflection. But even though we often refer the small to the good and contemplative, the miniature is not a purely utopian space after all. Over the past decades, it was especially the art which has repeatedly been infiltrated by horror. Reduction enables images which cannot be shown on a large scale. More than forty artists will be showing their perspective on the miniature through forms of reduction, compression or references in different media from painting to video. The artist Jay Gard will design the exhibition architecture. (excerpts from a text by Saskia Trebing)
