Greta Garbo lives in Lilliput

Taking the kids to that wonderful Erwin Wurm-show at Xavier Hufkens? Do drop by at Brussels’ gallery Taché-Levy as well. They’ll love the miniatures by American artist Tracey Snelling (Oakland, California). Greta Garbo Slept Here is her second show in Brussels. All the tiny houses, hotels and small-scale installations on display are referring to Hollywood; its glamour, intrigues and decadence. By using dim lights and video her miniatures seem to be really inhabited. It’s as if a story is developing right in front of your eyes. It certainly put a smile on my face, and got my imagination going. Or was I thinking too much about all those Märklin-train tracks I built as a kid?  (Taché-Levy, Rue Tenbosch 74, 1050 Brussels, through December 19)
