Paul St. George, Minumental, 1998

Paul St. George
Minumental, 1998 

Minumental scale version of Anthony Gormley's Angel of the North, launched to coincide with the opening of the actual Angel of the North.

Minumentals are a series of mini-sculptural pieces that are beautifully executed tiny versions of key works of twentieth century, such as Anthony Gormley’s ‘Angel of The North’ and Rachel Whiteread’s ‘Ghost’.Generally known only through photographic images, St George wanted to immortalise these monumental works in sculptural form. With the experience of physical size, scale, monumentality, uniqueness and location excised, only the concept remains intact. St George’s sculptures provide both a delightful ‘shrinking’ thrill and a wry insight into well-known conceptual works’ actual reliance on sensuous qualities like size and physical presence.
