What the Wayfarer Saw charts an 86 kilometre odyssey on foot from Goulburn to Braidwood over six days - sleeping by the roadside, in pubs and country homes along the way. Monde experienced a deep immersion with place, the pace of the walk forcing a slow and tangible connection with people and surroundings. 

 

This beautiful and brutal journey brought to the fore the artist’s personal experience of queerness in regional Australia, revealing vulnerability and defiance through emotional landscapes.

 

This exhibition is the artist’s first major solo exhibition at a public gallery with Goulburn Regional Art Gallery. Monde has exhibited widely and his works are held in collections in Australia and internationally.
