Installation view, Romania | Found. Lost. Found.


British Council

British Council

‘Found. Lost. Found.’ rediscovers Romania’s cultural and storytelling heritage through an immersive installation of contemporary jewellery and video projections. The exhibition reinterprets the age-old tale of lost treasure, hidden by Romania’s ancient Dacian civilization in the face of imminent Roman invasion.

The treasure and its contemporary counterparts are presented as living organisms, continuous and sedimentary, and embedded in collective memory. Here, their values transcend to one that is universal – a cultural and artistic Utopia.
