Unfound displays a survey of 60 questionable objects and ceramic materials for the first time from a fictional excavation by the Suna River in the Mount Sanyo area. The investigation, accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue and exhibition audio guide presents the research and hypothesis of Dr. Kitsutsuki Shiro. The objects are examined and given detailed descriptions of their aesthetics: from the choice of clay, forms and surface treatments as well as their assumed functions and production methods. The study of the artifacts offers insight to the lifestyle and customs of a puzzling time and imagined culture. The fictional excavation provides viewers the distance to review their personal relationships with present day objects and materials. The contemplation of a certain monument or artwork, furniture, a ‘healing’ crystal or a favourite tool in their homes and workplaces are brought to mind for their aesthetics and functions. The reflection of manufactured, fabricated or handmade objects challenge viewers to reconsider their connection to and the immaterial value of the physical object.

Unfoundでは、架空の発掘調査報告として、山陽地方「砂川」から発掘された60点にもわたる、謎の物体や陶器などを展示する。きつつきしろう博士の調査と仮説が、詳細な出土品のカタログと自動音声ガイドによって、説明される。発掘品は分析され、土の種類、形状、表面の処理方法のみならず、用途の想定、制作方法まで、詳細な考察がつけられている。これら出土品の研究は、空想上にある、謎めいた、時代・文化習慣や生活様式に対する洞察を与えてくれるだろう。本展示は、鑑賞者に、自らと現代の生活用品や物との関係に対する批評眼をもたらす。職場や自宅にあるモ二ュメントや美術、家具、癒しの水晶、愛着ある道具の外観や機能に対する新たな気づきをもたらす。大量生産品、加工品、手製品への考察は、鑑賞者に、自身と物質の関係性、また、それら物質がどんな価値をもたらしているの か、再考を促す。
