Through media such as print, painting, installation and film, these artists critique the ways in which humankind is perpetually on the move.

Pencil and graphite drawings trace the movement of people through the architectural spaces of the Van Gogh Museum-Amsterdam, Earlsfort Terrace-Dublin and Lello Bookshop-Porto plus two works created in 2008 featuring Kyoto Station and Liverpool ONE. (
