The Lost and The Found - JoJo Taylor. 2012.
Based on a study of spiritualist beliefs. A number of the glass containers are lit with soft, flashing lights. When we die we are called back to the spirit world. When our spirits begin to flash on and off, our time to return is near. The bottles and containers that make up the piece are not bought for the purpose. They have had a life-cycle of their own. Some are very old. Some were collected by a friend of the artist who had recently passed away.
First constructed over an extended period of time at a studio in Hertfordshire, all the suspension lines were carefully measured and their relative positions marked before the work was dismantled and precisely reassembled at an exhibition in East London.
