Two visual artists, a performance artist and a musician created work to be experienced in both the existing room and its miniature version.

For installation and performance piece Point Supreme Architects replicated the exhibition gallery space from blue foam at half its size; visitors simultaneously experience the space and its replica, the gallery and its model.

The space and its exhibit coincide. Like Alice in Wonderland people appear normal in the former and gigantic in the latter.

The architects provided the artists with the half scaled construction to work on.

Each artist’s intervention engages with the actual gallery space but also its miniature version.
