Press release

Lost Weekend is an exhibition organised between the galleries Yvon Lambert and Galerie Allen in Paris.

Due to the current world situation and considering that artist’s travel is inherently restricted, we are privileged that the creations of artists persist to move and communicate. So what better moment and medium to employ than our still-valued postal service.

Inspired by the resilience of our international community under duress, the exhibition project is titled “Lost Weekend” – the name John Lennon gave to an 18-month period where he plummeted to personal lows while reaching creative highs. A marked time of substance abuse, outrageous behaviour and the breakup and reconciliation of his relationship with Yoko Ono simultaneously spurred an intense musical output.

The two galleries had the desire to collaborate and consolidate ideas of exchange between geography, generations and intention. We fell for the idea of staging our version of the well seasoned Mail Art exhibition while placing a metaphorical fork in the road - 2 artworks leaving an artist’s studio in one part of the world and arriving in Paris to be split between two spaces while symbiotically resonating between each location.
