Big Works at "Small World" Exhibit

Small World

With over thirty participating artists, “Small World” features works that are explorations into miniature format. The only limitation being that their works do not exceed a six-inch cube, the artists utilize a broad range of materials and forms.

Here, there is the matter of minute autonomy, of minor worlds that open at the frame. Each work or set is ruled by distinct internal logics of facture and phrasing, with perhaps some even going so far to demand engagement solely on their terms. As we turn from one to the other, we work our way through discrete approaches and idiosyncracies of art practice.

At the same time, there is the matter of proximity, immediate and affective, that makes of these distinct points a community. What is self-contained is exposed to its neighbor and a valency or referentiality in terms of affinities, disjunctions, and counterpoints is established. Dense, reciprocal, and binding, these relationships, in turn, weave another world that must be traversed, articulated, mapped and otherwise reckoned with.

Ostensibly, it is the gallery space that demarcates the bounds of this world. But the exhibition is expansive even while it is diminutive and thus resists a reductive view. The gallery itself is merely another point in a larger matrix, not just of spaces of display and commerce, but of political economies, of traditions and paths of practice, and worlds besides.

Participating artists are : Ambie Abaño, Leo Abaya, Nick Aca, Mike Adrao, Carlo Aranton, Dennis Atienza, Robert Besana, Francis Commeyne, Marika Constantino, Biboy Delotavo, Alfredo Esquillo Jr., KarenFlores, Chris Gomez, Renato Habulan, Gregory Halili, Mark Justiniani, Kurt Lluch, Lofranco, Ivan Macarambon, Joy Mallari, Noli Principe Manalang, Ferdinand Montemayor, Lee Paje, Anthony Palomo, Christina Quisumbing Ramilo, Alwin Reamillo, Kirby Roxas, Archie Ruga, Don Salubayba, Ioannis Sicuya, Adeo Sta.
