Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Marc Giai-Miniet

French artist Marc Giai-Miniet’s works may look like doll houses at first, but they’ll give you the chills.

Giai-Miniet creates miniature boxes with gloomy old-school scifi laboratories, attics, libraries, storage and interrogation cells, and houses full of dusty, rusty rooms.

All of these miniature houses are filled from floor to ceiling with tiny books, machinery, household junk, storage boxes and odd experiments.

Giai-Miniet’s dioramas, or miniature 3D theatres or boxes, are disturbing metaphors for the human condition that succeed in rattling our curiosity wide-awake.

Containing the aftermath from scenes of unknown experiments, interrogations and slaughters, the works form an exploration of the physicality of memory.

Even though the spaces are cluttered with tons of little objects, “Les Boîtes” (The Boxes)  are still neatly organized and truly resemble real buildings as they might look through transparent facades.
