Gallery FIFTY ONE announces its new exhibition ‘XL - Size Matters’, a groupshow that focuses on the investigation of the necessity of large-scale formats in the practice of several artists.
A drawer or painter feels the need or urge to open up her or his gesture as to develop the language required for the idea to come to life. May it be abstract or figurative, the scale of the action is dictated on the spot, merely during the process itself. Some works cry for sweep others demand intimacy or even modesty in scale. The same can be noticed for sculptures. Their scale is an essential part of their 'meaning', of how they reach the spectator, totally intended so by the sculptor.
