Les Petites Choses was inspired by a French conversation about a common fascination with miniature objects and artworks. Tiny objects are precious, and often made by chance, or by a constant desire to push the limits of the materials to the smallest things a human hand can create. We often find small objects and carry them around, amassing collections of random things.
To change the approach of the viewer, magnifying glasses will be provided to see the show. Happiness and wonder comes from attention to details, from taking the time to examine what we overlook. Every little thing matters, we often start little to go big, or share a little bit to the most possible people. Ideas start as scribbles, as playful actions with what we find. Experimentation is often seen in small things, and small things can be made and shown anywhere. Most of the images we are bombarded with are very small and often only seen on a smart phone. Tiny images and objects fill our lives but who stops long enough to look at the details?
