The Bedford Town Calendar

Lost and Found

Town of Bedford, MA 10 Mudge Way, Bedford, MA, United States

This show, juried by Jessica Straus, examines our relationships with familiar, unfamiliar and defamiliarized objects. Sometimes we find things we never knew we lost. They have been hidden away in our attics or our drawers. Other things we discover in the dailiness of our lives. We find meaning and even healing in found objects and pieces from the past. Meanings are created somewhere between claiming and severing relationships with objects, between reviving and recasting their history. The work starts with a found object which must be physically embedded or transformed into the piece itself. Objects may be recognizable or beyond
