The Lost festivals 2020 - After EVENTS 

We had so much going on as part of the festival that we thought we'd save some things and share them after the main event. We have got more galleries of work (videos and still pieces), recordings of events that took place during the festivals, our 2020 video cabaret night entitled, 'How Do You See The Future?' and a project from one of our festival artists that you can continue to participate in.

So, without further ado, here is some more good stuff from the festival artists of 2020!!!

May We Collaborate - International Partner Collaborations 

May We Collaborate? is an exhibition of mixed-media artworks created during the government imposed lockdowns due to the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020. Suddenly, during lockdown, artists  seemed to have more time, less money, nowhere to go and nothing to do. Nothing except to create of course! May We Collaborate? is an exhibition of mixed-media artworks created during the government imposed lockdowns due to the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020. Suddenly, during lockdown, artists  seemed to have more time, less money, nowhere to go and nothing to do. Nothing except to create of course! 

All artists have got those pieces of artwork that were started and never finished, never felt complete, or were just forgotten as a new project took over. The pieces in this exhibition were these ‘lost’ artworks until we swapped them amongst the festival artists , allowing a new perspective and a fresh eye to approach the work. Artists had four weeks to complete their collaborations, working on top of and/or with the existing imagery. These are the finished collaborations.

Until now, the original artist has not seen how their work has been completed.We want to thank all the artists for taking part in this event, as giving someone else complete freedom with your work is brave as is completing or working on top of or with another artist's work. The image to the left shows just a few thumbnails of works from this project. To view all images and videos in full, please visit the two links under the image.

lost life magazine by clara lang-ezekiel

The imagined covers of LIFE Magazine screen prints, by Clara Lang-Ezekiel, featured in the LOST festivals are part of a wider project by the artist called The Future in Retrospect: LIFE Magazine, a screen print and installation piece based on a counterfactual approach to history aiming to highlight some of the forgotten female role models overlooked in their time. The Artist talk, held on Instagram live, will focus on the conceptual background of the project, the stories behind the covers featured in the festival, and allow the opportunity to ask questions at the end.

vanishing point by pascal ungerer

Vanishing Point is a film that looks at places of obsolescence that lie at the edges of the built environment. The film montages mirrored landscapes together to create a fictional and constructed world in a film that portrays a liminal and surreal topography of post-industrial sites, unfinished building projects, abandoned nuclear testing facilities and ‘edgeland’ enclaves on the margins of urban development. This work looks at habitats that don’t fit into socio geographic norms and acts as contemplative meditation on a dystopic and uncertain future.

The 'Lost' Artwork: The removal of 'The rising tide' by clare carter

I will discuss my collection of prints ‘Living Museum (i-vii)’. The piece is a personal response to the removal of Jason deCaires Taylor’s ‘The Rising Tide’ from the harbor below the MIAC in late 2019. These ‘lost’ artworks were initially made to raise awareness of climate change, and their removal by the council has forced me to question the future of contemporary art on the island of Lanzarote.

Homeland, the Dream of a working class hero by Tinaninani

A collaborating video project of 15 artists from all over the world.

Dance Mime theatre company TiNaNiNaNi from Netherland, started this idea to put artworks in 1 video work: The video starts with a man wakes up in the morning. His name is Hero. He stops the alarm-clock, gets out of bed, washes himself, have breakfast He lives in a simple area. In the darkest part of the city, where the sun refuses to shine Hero goes to work He crosses streets, walking to another bus maybe, or passes a park, a pub, a theatre, a museum. He is in love at distance with Magda, the coffee lady at the factory. Many times he looks in the mirror and thinks: Is this really me? Is this the life I want? Is there no hope? no future? Magda is looking for Homeland..... that is her dream. She invites Hero to go and look for it. Maybe with the help of all collaborating artists they will find the other side of the moon.
