LOST

2006, Commissioned Whitstable Bienale, published by Laconic

“Lost is an inventory of missing things, which renowned artist Simon Faithfull has mislaid over a period of 39 years. A simple but extensive inventory, Lost is a book that catalogues these objects and the strange, sometimes poignant and sometimes humorous stories of their individual departures.

In June 2006, Lost was deliberately left around the town of Whitstable, on the south-east coast of England. The publication appeared each day on benches, in pubs, by the seashore and on the various forms of public transport that were leaving the area.”
