Lost

‘Lost’ was a commission by Jo Hodges for the ‘Out of the Box’ seminar at Catstrand Art Centre, New Galloway. ‘Out of the Box’ explored artists practice working outside gallery spaces.

Each handbag in the installation was tagged with a ‘lost property’ number and left on the gates of the local park. Each handbag contained explorable items relating to ‘loss’.
