In the exhibition, The Lost City, American artist Joshua Goode will showcase the remnants of an underground city, a part of an imaginary ancient civilization. These ruins were found during an archeological research of multiple locations near the Miroslav Kraljević Gallery from March 11th to 14th. Posing as an archaeologist, Goode has publicly carried out an archaeological dig and discovered amazing lost treasures.
During the excavation, the passersby have witnessed the discovery of objects of the lost city and contemplated the boundaries between reality and fiction.
Joshua Goode will exhibit these found objects within the gallery space, temporarily transforming G-MK into a small archeological museum where reality and fiction become one.
