FOUND Curator, Zoë Lippett, will introduce the themes and artworks in the FOUND exhibition.

About

FOUND brings together seven contemporary artists who work with found images. Transforming, cutting, embellishing and re-working visual material sourced from the internet, flea markets, magazines and discarded personal collections, the artists enter into the histories and narratives present in strangers’ images. The exhibition explores themes of loss, memory and mass cultural experience, as well as socially-constructed hierarchies concerning gender, race, religion and mass culture. Drawing attention to our relentless consumption and self-projection of visual information in a digital age, the selected works reverberate and bring into question the feeling of being suffocated and framed by representations of other people’s lives, tastes and experiences.
