Collected Odysseys is a multimodal exhibition and performance that engages in a dialogue around ideas of journey, seen as a condition of contemporary life in both its positive and harrowingly tragic manifestations: journeying is explored in its duration, repetition, struggle, incompleteness, becoming, and its relational and performative telling/retelling. In doing this, Collected Odysseys avoids direct reference to current political issues or events, opting instead for a degree of abstraction and contemplation to facilitate engagement through a more open, less allegorical aesthetic appreciation.
