Lost exemplified the artistic influences of British artist Tania Kovats, who took on the role of curator for the first time. She explained,
“Lost implies a location, a geographical experience, possibly a landscape – there is a question inherent in the word. It also embodies the sense of some kind of emptying out, something not being there. It relates to memory and nostalgia and, at the same time, an oceanic freedom.”
Sculpture, installation, photography and painting by British and international artists were on show – from a huge spent firework by Cerith Wyn Evans to the minimalist canvas of Agnes Martin, from Julian Opie’s sculptural gravestones to the atmospheric photography of Wolfgang Tillmans. Also featured were Louise Bourgeois, Vija Celmins, Le Corbusier, Thierry de Cordier, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Brad Kahlhamer, Martin Kippenberger, Tania Kovats, Paul McCarthy, Iain Patterson and Vincent Shine.
