Lost & Found marks a shift in Kaabi-Linke’s practice where she moves towards the act of print making from the act of an indexical, time-related mark making activity and explores cavities of time and space that reveal themselves through a tactile recording of surface impressions. Surface impressions, in Kaabi-Linke’s practice over the last decade, have had increasing relevance in revealing qualities and narratives lost in time. Her work casts new light upon her subjects of enquiry – usually things that don't necessarily seem to withhold information such as old wall surfaces, forensic studies on people’s skins amongst others – which in turn unravel themselves with new meaning.
