Yonder offers a contemporary perspective on the desire that artists have always had to know 'what's over there'. With the notion of 'mobility' as the exhibition's central idea, Yonder considers some of the poetic and pragmatic connotations associated with this strategy for investigating, taking action and day dreaming about one's place in the world.

Art Exhibition previously on at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) in Perth precinct, Western Australia, Australia.
From Saturday 08 September 2012 to Sunday 21 October 2012

The artists in the exhibition reference material, virtual and enquiry-based itineraries that reflect a diversity of approaches to propulsion and apprehension of the world. Whether working with traditional media such as paper and pigment or recent media such as digitised text, their approaches produce the effect of a route, a path or way being taken.
