Welcome to the Lost & Found archive. Since 1997, over 200 sessions of stray images and sound have been organised. Artists, writers, scientists and musicians present work in progress, experiment or present work that doesn't fit into their oeuvre (yet). A specific and unique stage for diverse and hybrid works which don't fit comfortably into galleries or museums.

    At the entrance we each got an excerpt of text painted onto one nail. As we attempt to decipher what it reads, we are told that it’s part of the darkest page of the artist’s diary. Leaving one’s confessions onto other people’s nails seems like a fitting form of revival.
