21 February - 7 June

As Artists in Residence at Museum of Brisbane (MoB) for BrisAsia Stories, Christine Ko and Louis Lim will extend upon their ongoing project Departure. In this iteration of the project, Christine and Louis will lead a series of informal conversations and workshops with various members from Brisbane migrant communities. Participants will be encouraged to share their stories of migration and create paper kites using photographs from their family archives.

Christine and Louis are interested in kites as a symbol for the migrant experience, for they evoke “flights of joyous and naive childlike wonder and optimism that is simultaneously at the whim of external circumstances, constantly buffeted by the surrounding environment that can sometimes lead to deep disappointment (crash landing)”. Over the residency, more and more kites will be added to an evolving installation in the MoB Hallway. The kites will be accompanied by written transcripts of the recollections of the participants. In sharing these stories, the project will contribute to larger conversations about immigration and race in Australia.


When: 1 February – 7 June, 10am – 5pm daily

Where: Museum of Brisbane, Brisbane City Hall
