Conversations and Correspondence


Each text reveals part of a relational constellation that underpins Alana's practice as a whole, and these images specifically—connecting people and places, processes and practices, influences and experiences, in a series of discursive, free flowing dialogues.

As part of The National 2021: New Australian Art exhibiting artist Alana Hunt was Carriageworks' inaugural Writer in Residence. Published progressively over the course of the exhibition on the Carriageworks Journal Conversations and Correspondence are six conversational texts that take as their starting point the bodies of work All the violence within this and In the national interest both exhibited as part of The National.
