In a humorous approach of re- utilising the micro-space made avail- able to RETA on demand some years ago, this time instead of asking our artists to adjust the content/amount of pieces to fit the tiny room(ca.16m2), we called for a 90% size reduction(16x16x16cm).
The exhibition took form of a grotesque, oversaturated group show balancing between kitsch and sophistication. Conquering the institutional limitations, as well as playing around with the ‚rules‘ of the whitecube / gallery / museum aesthetics . Carefully tip toeing away from the omnipresent #minimalism , giving in to the precalculated dialogue between the multitude of voices within the space. The exhibition presented RETA to new students on the MFA info-day, including 36 artistic positions, residing in a subtile, diologue emerging be- tween the pieces.
