CURATED BY EDWINA BARTLEM & VICTOR GRISS*

Many artworks have whimsical or surreal qualities of dreams, fairy tales and fables, and like many folkloric tales, occasionally a dark or cautionary quality. Ideas of cuteness, reality, history, power and belonging are introduced through various formal and symbolic devices. Several artists play with scale drawing the viewer into a miniature world overshadowed by colossal creations, generating awe and wonder. Alternatively the viewer can play the role of the giant, observing the drama and curiosity of a Lilliputian world.

The gallery will stay open until 8 pm on Wednesday nights as a special feature of this exhibition in addition to its usual operating times.
