The Forest of the MiniatureSol Undurraga
This exhibition intends that boys and girls explore a forest and discover how this network of life is formed with trees, birds and mammals, as well as bugs of the most diverse types and sizes. This is where the big and the small, the different and the collaboration, appear as essential components and actions.
The Forest of the Miniature, by the illustrator Sol Undurraga and curated by the editor Marcela Fuentealba, highlights the broad network of relationships and interdependencies that are generated in a space where, even the smallest of bugs, is essential for the coexistence of the species.
This exhibition responds to one of the objectives and visions of CCLM, which seeks to integrate the environment as a curatorial axis to think about the present from multiple disciplines and knowledge.
The Museography of Galería Cero (level -1) recreates a forest where children encounter trees, plants and the characteristic fauna, some huge and others smaller, but without a doubt all necessary to preserve community life. Among the flora of the forest, some cabinets will house more than 300 fictional insects accompanied by texts and objects that highlight the importance of a system of relevant relationships, where fantasy and imagination invites children to explore and be inspired.
It opened its doors in August 2019 and was created for children to have a first approach to the world of art and culture through a significant aesthetic experience.
