Quiet little Scenes

Teeny Theatres: sinister, miniature scenes built from junk-shop odds and ends, and populated by Hoogerbrugge-like figurines in suggestive poses. They’re a combination of Victoriana, early 20th-century nostalgia and Hogarthian spatial narrative, and each teeny theatre captures a sense of tension, nostalgia or drama within a circumscribed space.

There’s the Teatro della Marionetti, the Teatro dell’Altro Mondo, and the Teatro dei Carti, among others. And a Cafepress wall calendar is available.

(And yes, Mars Tokyo is the name of the artist. There’s not currently an exhibition in Japan, as I first thought.)
