Lost & Found is a night of stray images and sounds. The program consists of audio visual presentations by artists, writers, poets and musicians and is compiled from received and selected material by Constant Dullaart and Julia van Mourik. On show is, amongst others, an artist's purse and its contents, produced via the da Vinci Surgical System, the terminator 1 & 2 subtitles, a lake in the Swiss Alps with an almost mirror-like surface explored with Google Earth, a poser, and an artist coming down the Congo river with a neon sign that reads: Enjoy Poverty.
Lost & Found was initiated in Amsterdam in 1997. The idea arose from an urge to show material by artists, writers, poets and musicians which doesn’t fit comfortably in the gallery; work which demands more concentration than the usual walk-by, or seems out of place anywhere.
Lost & Found will be held in the New Museum Sky Room and is co-sponsored by Rhizome. Thanks to Mondriaan Foundation, Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, Gemeente Amsterdam, New Museum and Fantastic Man.
