Large format II is an exhibition of artworks from the collection of Macedonian and foreign authors and is about the relation of the artwork towards the architectural space and the viewer.

“How do we percept the format in the art? Humongous plastic ice cream, huge dogs made of balloons, long painted canvas rolls, or simply enlarged photo-portraits painted on the buildings around the world – are some of the examples where the dimension in the expression is a dominant element of the aesthetic in the artworks. The format is connected to the dimensions of the object comparing to the other object, and very often it can be one of the principles of the organization of visual and structural elements in the art. The format in the art is not only about the dimensions of the artwork, but also it is a relational principle of the ratio towards the objects or relation towards the human body. The relational aesthetic is the basis of the artwork, and the corporality or spatial component can be considered as measures which define or are in relation to the size or perception of the art work” – Blagoja Varoshanec.
