222lodge presents
The Festival of the Smallest
21 October 2020
Opening: 11:00 (UTC+2

A month before we published this Open Call:
We are looking for the smallest, the quietest, the least, the narrowest, the slowest, the lightest, the shortest and the thinnest. If your work is barely perceptible by eye, by ear, by mind, yet unmistakably present, then we want to show it somehow.
We don’t want to predefine a format. It can be part of an exhibition, an evening or a magazine. It depends what you come up with …
Due to the revival of the pandemic, we present this festival online only.

Participating artists:
Trevor Byrne, Clare Charnly, Maud Faassen, Tamara Jungnickel, Ienke Kastelein, Joshua Legallienne, Frans van Lent, Manuela Macco, MishMash, Nico Parlevliet, Patrick Quinn, ronnie s, Patrick Stefanak, Society of Smallness, Adriana Valls, Frans Verschoor, Wilma Vissers, Christine Wassermann, Ed Woodham.

Maumont is a small village in the Perigord in France. It consists of 15 houses, around 30 inhabitants and there is no church, shop, café or other public facility. Only a few original residents are still living in the village; most of them died over the years, others left to live elsewhere. Today many inhabitants are pensioners coming from other (Western European) countries. Twenty years ago you could still smell the farms everywhere. Herds of cows and sheep were led through the village every day. Nowadays you mainly see quads, mountain bikes and parents, leading their children on donkeys.
The village has changed from a place where everything was related to soil, work, growth and the seasons, to a place where the inhabitants mainly stroll, relax and dream. Continue reading
