Return Flight is taking off for the last time.

Bound this year for Hong Kong, Return Flight MEL>HKG is the final leg in an ambitious, three-year international project pairing artists and writers from around the globe.

This year, we invited ten artists from Melbourne and Hong Kong to create unique works responding to the theme ‘away’. Ten writers from the opposite city responded. Then we introduced them to each other.

The result is a collection of ten cross-disciplinary and multilingual creative exchanges. The individual works reflect on identity, place, displacement and belonging.

The works are presented as both an exhibition in Melbourne and Hong Kong and a book. The book also captures transcripts of artist writer interviews that give an insight into the collaborative process.
