Lost and Found - stage候台BACK Gallery and Eastlink Gallery under the same roof at M50, Shanghai

What is loss, what is discovery, what is new and what is old? That is exactly what a group of artists is discussing in the Lost&Found exhibition in the stageBACK Gallery. The artists are Chris Gill (GB), Kathryn Gohmert (USA) + Xebo. W. S. (ESP), Laurent Friquet (F), Maleonn (CN) and Tang Xiaowen (CN).

A Chinese saying claims : ‘The mind of attachment to loved ones and objects is like water, the mind of hatred burns like fire, the mind of ignorance forgets what to keep and what to throw away, and abandoning one’s country is the greatest Buddhists’ practice’.

After the forced departure from the 696 Weihai Road Studio Complex in Shanghai in May 2011, approximately 70 artists and galleries were forced to search for a new home.

Lost & Found is the first stage候台BACK exhibition at M50 in Shanghai. Therefore, it is not only the artwork that deals with the concept of ‘Lost and Found’ but it’s also the gallery itself that reinvents and rediscovers itself anew. We are pleased to showcase pictures from the opening night.

The stage候台BACK gallery and Eastlinke gallery will continue to work together in future and take turns in making use of the M50 (50 Morganshan Road, Shanghai).

Eastlink is all about historic works and stage候台BACK (founded by Susanne Janker) focuses on Contemporary art exhibitions by Chinese artists.
