Mission to Touch the Sun is a group show exploring tourism as a form of idealised escapism, presumed offer of the exotic and simulation of normality, exploring these intersections with a comical satire.

About

Manufactured offers of the exotic drives the travel industry. Tourism is a global economy led by our desire to discover dream destinations and experience the authentic. By making leisure, travel and location collide seemingly easily, this offer creates expectancy of, and the want to consume and indulge in the ‘other’. Mission to Touch the Sun slaps the back of the sunburnt tourist, points the selfie stick in the air, and before the photo is taken says: “tourism is a form of idealized escapism, presumed offer of the exotic and simulation of normality”. The works explore these intersections with a comical satire, cannon balling into the deep end of the world of backpackers and the all-inclusive.
