The exhibition 'Home For Lost Ideas' features over 100 artists, collecting together ideas lost, forgotten, not good enough, impossible, or too beautiful.

The contributions collected for this book take the form of musings, projects, dreams; and their potentials. Some things are desperate to be made, others are better off as concepts.
In a gale of possibility one has to choose. 'Home For Lost Ideas' offers a glimpse into the choices artists make between work that gets made and things that are left behind. The book uncovers moments of inspiration, decision-making and notions of quality control.

'Home For Lost Ideas' opens where sentimentality meets humour.

The book project began four months ago and GENERAL PUBLIC is very happy to present the artists Catherine Griffiths and Dan Rees findings.
