The bigger - the better? The upcoming group exhibition at Gallery Lachenmann Art shows that this mantra is not always true, with works that are united by just one aspect: their size.
Small-format artworks not only offer artists a special opportunity to present their work, but also the chance to consciously focus their creativity and explore different themes and techniques. Concentrating on a small display area allows the audience to take a fresh look at unusual perspectives, small details, variations and also disruptions to viewing habits. This creates an intimate relationship between artist, work and visitor, focussing on the delicate nuances that would otherwise remain hidden on a large scale.
At the same time, the small size allows the spectator to bring this intimate relationship to the outside world and to place themselves at the centre. Small, light and yet sophisticated in terms of content, small-format works can be easily integrated into existing living and home situations. This kind of artwork is aimed at experienced art lovers and those who want to become ones. They enrich existing collections in a distinctive way and also form a wonderful starting point for the beginning of a new passion.
