Travelling Light

Elisabeth Kihlström and Yuki Higashino


This handbound publication is a culmination of 2 years collaborative work between artists Elisabeth Kihlström and Yuki Higashino. It brings together research, imagery and prints that were generated during their exploration on the theme of artists’ mobility, in historical artists' colonies or contemporary research grants and artist residencies. Travelling Light was produced at the occasion of Port, their joint show at Mount Analogue. The following text accompanied the exhibition.

Artists move around. In the past, they went to beautiful places, usually in the south, to be inspired, joined artists’ colonies or ran away from creditors. Today, we do residencies, teach in foreign cities, get funding to go on research trips or fly in to oversee installations. We‘ve been making works about the history of artists’ movements, while thinking about our own travels for the production and presentation of works in this show:
