Lost & Found @ ONCA Gallery


  • ONCA Gallery 14 St George's Pl Brighton, BN1 4GB United Kingdom

Wednesday – Friday 12-7pm

Saturday & Sunday 11-6pm

Lost & Found is a powerful and challenging multi-media installation of visual arts created to present evidence of the links between consumer culture and the decline of the natural world. It focuses on over production and over consumption, particularly of food, and the impact this is having on the British countryside.

Pale Blue Dot launched Lost & Found in May 2014, an interdisciplinary research project, in collaboration with Oxford University Museum of Natural History and Prof. Dave Goulson from the University of Sussex. Pale Blue Dot are now bringing Lost & Found to Brighton to collaborate with Onca and to develop new work, with Dave Goulson and members of his team, referencing farming and food production in rural Sussex and the surrounding area.

In collaborating with Onca, Pale Blue Dot wish to stage events that create opportunities for dialogues about these issues between groups that don’t normally coincide: artists, scientists, farmers, food producers and retailers and the public.

Pale Blue Dot is a new not for profit arts-science organisation founded by Jane King and Neil Mabbs, in collaboration with UK environmental scientists, to present evidence about a range of environmental and social concerns through exhibitions, publications, talks and interventions.
