ABOUT RETURN FLIGHT:
Artists are often asked to illustrate writing. In RETURN FLIGHT, the process is reversed. We asked ten artists to respond to the idea of ‘place’, before assigning each work to a writer from the opposite city. The writers could respond however they liked, but without the luxury of context: both artwork and artist names were withheld until the end.
The result? A series of compelling and surprising works that suggest our global creative community is tighter than we think.
