Too often in our societies, man is absorbed by his daily life, constantly caught in his infernal rhythms and tends to become a machine. Our civilizations, blinded by the singular necessity of endless production, crush everything in their path. A quest that makes us lose our identity and the traces of our past, to live only in the present as we rush headlong towards the future. But everywhere hands reach forth and minds seek each other out in an attempt to learn to live for each other.
After Los Angeles in April 2021, a city also committed to sustainable development, Lost in Singapore is a dog sitting in the midst of an ultra-modern architecture as a symbol of life and the contribution of Aurèle to tomorrow’s world, so that action again becomes sister to dream in order to liberate the possibilities of new lives in each of us.
Artworks are from a private collection.

Lost In Singapore: An Interview with Aurèle RicardAlliance Française presents ‘Lost In Singapore’ for Singapore Art Week 2022 featuring works by French visual artist Aurèle Ricard, better known as Aurèle LostDog. Since the 1980s Aurèle has made a spectacle around the world with his collection of large bull terrier sculptures, raising awareness about the state of humanity and our planet with every city it visits. His LostDogs are best known for its incredible artistry as well as its purpose; questioning our existence and our relationship with the world around us. An enraged and committed artist, Aurèle's comprehensive work conveys a message of urgency and resistance to the plague of an era of which his "LostDog" becomes the symbol. This week, The Artling speaks with Aurèle Ricard on his inspiration for LostDog and his remarkable artistic journey.

Aurèle Ricard is a French postindustrial visual artist. His "LostDog" is a trademark, his yellow a color of hope. Aurèle is the prototype of a generation of artists driven by on-the-ground action more than by a simple arty attitude, a way of being more that a way of showing. Enraged and committed artist, Aurèle comprehensive work conveys a message of urgency and resistance to the plague of an era of which his "LostDog" becomes the symbol. Aurèle has been developing, for more than twenty-five years, the same radical project of denouncing modern wanderings. Its goal: to mobilize present and future generations in the face of wars, epidemics, ecological catastrophes, political and media excesses, precariousness and exclusion, inequalities and overconsumption. In Aurèle's world, art confronts reality and thereby becomes a true "mirror of modernity”.
Since the 1980s, he continuously exhibited his Lost Dog around the world to raise awareness.
