"lost and found" in Bargoed

“lost and found” is an exhibition of analogue photographs brought to the gallery by our visitors from Bargoed and a little beyond.

In the times of digital photography we wanted to remind everyone about the importance of physical prints that don’t get deleted easily and that can last for generations. We asked people to have another look at their photo albums, the type that all of us used to have and that we’d fill up with memories of holidays, celebrations and snapshots of everyday life.

They are not only accounts of people’s past, but also of past photographic and printing techniques that are no longer used on a mass scale, as well as anthropological and historical documents.

The photographs will be presented as prints and projections on our gallery walls.

We’d like to thank everyone who trusted us with their photographs and thus gave us an insight into their lives and artistic endeavours.

The exhibition is opening in the Hanbury Road Gallery (52 Hanbury Road) in Bargoed on the 9th of March at 12 and will run until the 26th of March, Mon-Sat from 10.30 to 6.

Welsh info coming soon!

It is the 6th and penultimate exhibition organised in this space by the*kickplate*project thanks to grants from the Arts Council of Wales (Welsh Government and Lottery Funding),
Caerphilly Arts Development and Bargoed Town Council.
