SHAUN TAN: THE ART OF STORY. THE LOST THING. BOOK TO FILM
22 April – 16 July 2017
A Books Illustrated touring exhibition.
The story of The Lost Thing is about a boy who befriends a strange creature which seems to be lost. The tale follows the boy’s journey as he tries to find out where this lost thing belongs.
“So you want to hear a story? Well, I used to know a whole lot of pretty interesting ones. Some of them so funny you’d laugh yourself unconscious, others so terrible you’d never want to repeat them. But I can’t remember any of those. So I’ll just tell you about the time I found that lost thing….”
– Shaun Tan
The exhibition features a range of original drawings, paintings and other developmental work for both the picture book and the animated film.
