The Museum of Found Objects

Categories InstallationPosted on

The most direct way to describe what The Museum of Found Objects is about is to see it as an archaeology of the present. Our fascination lies in using a range of physical and cultural contexts to fuel alternative ways of seeing, and our main resources are objects. Everyday objects give us the ability to see things in a different way. They are accessible, unpretentious, and from the surface can reach deep into the hidden undercurrents of a place. They also embody major facets of a society including the economy, modes of production, and personal / cultural use. In a deliberate way, we aim to analyze the surface, or the seen in order to understand the buried or the unseen.

The Museum of Found Objects is a project initiated by artists Mirjam Linschooten (Netherlands/France) and Sameer Farooq (Canada).
