Featuring commissioned artworks, artist loans and works from the Singapore Art Museum collection, “Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas” invites visitors into Earth’s watery realms, as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists. Through the centuries, over numerous expeditions, and with ever-increasing sophistication in science and technology, humankind has sailed the seven seas and plunged into the very depths of oceanic trenches. Yet there remains much to be discovered of this alien world.
Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas is where artists delve into the unfathomable depths of the ocean’s mysteries, and also think through the tempests that batter our sails on this journey through life. Riddled with twists and turns, where will our explorations take us? While we seem to know more and more about the world around us, to what extent does it give us insights into human nature? To what ends our endless discoveries?
