Lost and Found
26 August, 2021–11 September, 2021
A dog runs through Hamraborg and catches the scent of objects that seem to be just as out of place as he is. A map forms, an analysis of a place that is constantly changing. At the entrance of Midpunkt is a flag that maps out lost objects that were found around Hamraborg. Visitors are invited to retrace the objects that might have been found or lost once again.
