18 - 26 March 2017 at The Barn, Rosny Farm, Hobart
as part of the 2017 Ten Days on the Island festival

Returning Lives is a series of oil and ink paintings by the Hobart-based Chinese-Australian artist Chen Ping, presented with a hand-drawn short animation film by Shanghai animator Zeng Yi Gang, inspired by Chen Ping's paintings and accompanied by a new percussion score by the French composer Gabriel Collet, reflecting upon both the paintings and the animation. The score, which accompanied the animation screenings, was performed live by Gabriel and Polish percussionist Elwira Slazak. This three-way collaboration between Hobart, Shanghai and Warsaw is part of our Creative Futures initiative, which we established in 2005 to encourage intercultural engagement between artists & producers from Australia & China.
