Going Down Swinging Presents: _Return Flight Mel>HKG
⬤ 8 Aug - 24 Aug 2019
Tucked away in West Melbourne's Blender Studios, we land in Hong Kong for the third and final iteration of curator Elizaveta Maltseva's three-year project: Return Flight MEL-HKG. For this iteration of Return Flight, a project dubbed as a cross-cultural exchange between artists and writers and presented by long-running literary journal Going Down Swinging, Maltseva has commissioned twenty artists from Melbourne and Hong Kong to create new works responding to the thematic 'Away'. Works are digitally sent to respective writers in their opposing city where they—without any context concerning the artist's work and practice—respond. The result is a beautiful collection of dialogues between artists echoing each other's vulnerabilities and desire for belonging.
