A Field Guide to Getting Lost’ at T.A.F, Athens: Curated by Amalia Charikiopoulou, Ismene King. Τhe exhibition’s title pays direct tribute to Rebecca Solnit’s book ‘A Field Guide to Getting Lost’. In her series of autobiographical essays Solnit deals with notions of uncertainty, trust, loss, memory, desire, and place and the use of story-telling as a compass for navigating our way through the world, towards finding ourselves or equally losing ourselves. There is a moment of choice in getting lost, a conscious decision to take a path not known and to travel the journey, decidedly without the necessity of finding something or one’s self at the end of the road.

The exhibition reflects upon those moments of uncertainty and ambiguity, and also relates them to those very personal uncertain moments in an artist’s practice. The liminal space of the studio or travel, the states of ‘feeling lost’, ‘being lost’ and ‘getting lost’ and ‘not knowing’ are explored as a resourceful way to exist and to create art.
