Adventures of Little Things
Published in 2006
“For me an object is something living. This cigarette or this box of matches contains a secret life much more intense than that of certain human beings.” Joan Miró. 1893-1983
A sense of intimacy that wears well in the small, the petite, and the little. A little thing that becomes invested with an idea and memory. The adventures of little things record the notion of size more than scale. Director of Gallery and Theatre, Ms Bridget Tracy Tan selects 6 artists from a variety of artistic orientations, each featuring their recent creations in an exhibition by the same title. Featured artists are late sculptor Anthony Poon, painters Parvathi Nayar and Terry Poh; ceramists, Deryk Stronach and Jacqueline Ng, and young installation artist Claire Cheng.
