The point of departure for the exhibition is the notion of scale. The exhibition includes works the sizes of which often play significant roles alongside compositions which the artist executed in several identical versions only the dimensions of which differ. What are the formal, conceptual and practical reasons which might explain how various dimensions and extreme sizes become particularly accentuated in a work of art? Where do the borders lie between formal experimentations, economic considerations (such as compliance with the exigencies of the art market), and solutions which constitute responses to particular questions raised by an artist? The exhibition explores the expressive potentials of scale as part of artistic strategy in a wide range of compositions, including outright minimalist works, compositions which were made using no or almost no palpable materials, occasionally ironic works which nudge the viewer out of familiar positions, and compositions monumental in scale.
