Void and (Float.) inviteD artists using the photographic medium, to participate in their project “Found & Lost” that took place between 13-19 JUN ‘17 in (Float.) gallery.
For this first collaboration between Void and (Float.), the gallery’s walls and floor were transformed into a live and pulsating editing table. In the end, a publication was be produced out of this gallery-size editing space.
For a limited number of days, and for this very specific project, we have decided to treat FOUND as an accidental and transient condition instead of an end goal. The longing for being found, discovered, reclaimed is replaced by an acceptance of oblivion’s permanence. By embracing LOST, we release all expectations and allow the possibility of FOUND to be closer to marvel than reassurance.
We invite visitors to act as witnesses in this in-between state of images - after being captured, while being edited, before being published.
During the first day of the project, all contributed images were printed within the gallery and spread out in the ground floor space, allowing the process to commence and unfold.
(Float.) had its doors open, so the editing of the publication is open to the public.
Frames were created on the walls, which represented the pages of a publication.
The publication was edited in situ on the walls of (Float.). By the end of the 2nd day, the gallery’s walls were the maquette for the publication to be done on the following days.
During the 3rd day, the publication was printed in (Float.) to be presented on the night of the 4th day together with the final exhibition-installation that was the result of the editing process.
