An event every day that begins at 11:00, repeating until 25 September 2019

Debris, a photography and video exhibition by Milan-based artist Paola Musico, focuses on found, lost and discarded objects in otherworldly beachscapes in the UK and Egypt. Imagining a place which gathers all the lost property in the world, the show draws on inspiration from literature, mythology and psychology.

Presenting the treasures of human existence across generations in these magical landscapes, the artist raises questions about human affection and the desire for everlasting relations between people and those objects that make up our daily life. Here we see baskets woven artfully by nature into the sand, upended boats blending into stones, the wilfully left and the purposelessly forgotten coexisting on a beach of lost dreams.

The exhibition is a site-specific installation in the Fitzrovia Chapel, a masterly baroque Grade II* listed building tucked away in the centre of the capital. The first day of the exhibition is presented as part of Open House London.
