Tiny Live Art (Development Agency) - 20 works for 20 years

For LADA’s 20th anniversary, Robert Daniels has created the special edition Tiny Live Art (Development Agency) - 20 works for 20 years: 20 miniature sculptures of iconic performance works, which were nominated by artists and curators.

Part re-enactment, part archive, part hobby, Tiny Live Art embraces and embodies theories and practices of performance documentation, re-enactment and the making and sharing of memory, and draws from aspects of street art, installation and hobbyist pursuits like model railway and airfix kit building. 

Robert Daniels has created two sets of Tiny Live Art (Development Agency) editions. One set of editions is made up of twenty pieces which have been created with a bespoke display and are exclusively available as one-off works for sale on Unbound.

The second set of editions are encased within bell jars, are on permanent display in LADA’s Study Room, and are not available to purchase.

  • Marina Abramović, 7 Easy Pieces, reperforming Gina Pane's, The Conditioning, first action of Self-portrait(s) (1973)
