Big, bigger, mega. A group show where the art is so large that it barely fits into the gallery. Even on the invitation card there is hardly room for the four letters M, E, G and A.

 

Throughout art history there has been a particular fascination with large formats. From the Pyramids to Michelangelo’s colossal sculpture of David. At MEGA, where the nine participating artists each present one single large piece, we are, except in the depictions of nature’s forces that are larger than man himself, however more grounded. From a gigantic floor lamp to an oversized sock, a winter garden and giant jumping jacks. The exhibition contains floor mosaics and sculptures as well paintings that are simply very, very big.
