Mr Mahler and I met this year in Vienna. Not for the first time, but we’d never really talked to each other before. Over a really good Schnitzel we decided to work together on this year’s Reprodukt Christmas card. A few days later I received a few (!) sketches from Nicolas and started to scratch one of his drawings. Our publisher Dirk Rehm liked the card right from the start. The idea of combining the most minimal of his artists with the slowest must have been as intriguing to him as it was to us. A new concept for a classic message: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The return of the small format is a quiet but nonetheless conspicuous phenomenon. It long seemed to be an old-fashioned, picturesque curiosity, hardly capable of bearing contemporary art’s styles, methods and problematic of. But one can now increasingly find small-format works in various fields of present-day art. No previous exhibition has dealt with this transformation, and yet it poses exciting questions: What induced the return of the miniature? What are the works’ qualities and how do they relate to the few miniature statements of past decades? “Amor Parvi” describes a previously neglected field of relationships, stylistic genealogies and new questions. The interest in the clarity and structure of the small format is shown not to be a modest gesture, but rather an advancement of exacting examination, of “coming closer” and finding a very distinct art experience in this concentrated proximity. And in fact the viewer’s glance often lingers longer on such small-format works than larger works which already seem so revealing from a distance. (Oliver Tepel)
