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.


La Ribot, Another Bloody Mary (Still Distinguished #27) (2000)

“This is La Ribot’s Another Bloody Mary (Still Distinguished #27) (2000) in a glass vitrine. This was a really difficult piece to respond to, given its subject matter (and the fact that its wider meaning if only fully understood in relation to the other actions in the Still Distinguished series). A vitrine is (simply) a name for a glass display case, for curio and object d’arte. There are a range of descriptions/reviews for the original work, but one that stood out was it being described a s a ‘crime scene’. Displaying La Ribot, and the final part of the action inside, it appears inside like a relic: a snapshot, or even a macabre diorama of the moment, to be revealed and displayed, or shut away and hidden.” – Robert Daniels

Another Bloody Mary – Red and Gold Vitrine Box (brass and glass) (W7.5cm x L8.5cm x H6.5cm). Preiser 16400 (modified), mixed fabric, paper, balsa.
