The Los Issue is the catalogue for Lost (in L.A.), and exhibition by Marc-Olivier Whaler. This catalogue is a fiction, a story, using narrative devices to reflect the topics addressed by the exhibition in space. It collides works from local and foreign artists, using L.A. as stage, as set and as prop. The book, like the show, is a mirror. DISCLAIMER: This is not a catalogue in the way you expect.
THE LOST EXHIBITION, Curated by Marc-Olivier Whaler
This catalogue unfolds in four parts, each one is introduced by a 'mirror interlude,' creating a loop of sorts through characters and conversations. This issue will use devices of theater & cinematics to construct a narrative structure. It will play on the television trope of subverting the time-space continuum of it's characters, and by default of its audience. This is you.
