The metaphysical aspects of travel are explored in works by Jeffrey Smart, Jan Senbergs, Hiroaki Takahashi, Craig Koomeeta and others. The idea of the journey raises questions about freedom and physical limitation, the fluidity of identity, the passage of time, and the experience of passing through different spaces and ways of living.

‘Travellers’ includes decorative objects that transport sustenance and medicine – ancient water vessels from China and the Japanese inrō with carved netsuke – as well as paintings, prints, sculptures and videos that capture images of discovery, trade, pilgrimage and forced relocation.
