FOUND brought together works by 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 explored themes of loss, memory and mass cultural experience, as well as socially-constructed hierarchies concerning gender, race, religion and mass culture.
