PING PONG
Jorge Julián Aristizábal - Greg Creek
7th - 30th of November
Design Hub, RMIT University, Melbourne- Australia

In recent decades a significant number of emerging and established Colombian draughtsmen have distinguished themselves in major international scenarios. ln 2012, with the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its Plan for the Promotion of Colombia Abroad, Colombia´s artists were on display in the New York Drawing Center, in Universidad Autónoma de México (MUAC), in the Sao Paulo Bienal, and in the Drawing Room in London.
Considering the rise that this medium has taken, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs replicated the visual arts project PING PONG, developed in past years by the Colombian artist Jose Antonio Suárez Londoño. Entitled with the same name, in this case, the project led to some sort of visual dialogue between Colombian and foreign artists. During two months each artist worked, simultaneously to its counterpart, in the production of a series of drawing on the same words or subjects.
Through this project, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs led to a cultural exchange, strengthen cultural bonds between Colombia and Asia Pacifil countries and raise awareness on drawing, one of the most outstanding expressions of Colombia’s current artistic scenario.

Rules to play pingpong
1. Agree with your playmate the minimum and maximum dimensions of the drawings that will be developed.
2. Make a list of 10 words (ideas or texts).
3. Give a copy of your lists to your playmate.
4. Proceed to cut each word and roll them. Each player will have a total of 20 rolls of paper in a container (10 suggested and 10 received from its counterpart).
5. Each artist will take the words from the container randomly, creating a drawing for each one of them.
6. The time to play will be 2 months, starting from the moment the list of words is given to its counterpart.
7. As a result there will be 40 drawings (20 couples).
