TINY CAT GALLERY³ OPEN CALL

AW2020 sees a new pop up in the form of Tiny Cat Gallery³, this time it is a traditional white cube gallery. It is staffed and visited by small plastic cats.

TCG³ is constructed of glued and nailed sustainable OSB. It is painted white inside. The dimensions of the rear wall are just 18.2cm x 18.3cm.

The gallery has no theme and is open to submissions and proposals. Due to the light-hearted approach of the gallery I cannot show anything of a seriously political or sad nature. Exhibitions do not have to be about cats.

    SUSAN PLOVER - A FEAST FOR YOUR EYES

    The piece was created as a response to the scale of the gallery and as an image that would attract the resident audience of cats. The subject is deliberately riffing upon a cat who plays poker for FISH!
