The Kermadec are a group of small volcanic islands northeast of the North Island situated at the most remote point of New Zealand. They are a nature reserve, uninhabited, except for the main island, Raoul Island which is ‘manned’ by a Department of Conservation field station.

In 2011 nine artists, Dame Robin White, John Pule, Gregory O’Brien, Elizabeth Thomson, Bruce Foster, Phil Dadson, John Reynolds, Jason O’Hara and Australian Fiona Hall were invited by the Kermadec Initiative of the Pew Environment Group to join them in a journey throughout the Kermadec Region ending with a visit to Tonga. This expedition was set up as a challenge for each of the artists to commit to producing a visual diary articulating their various experiences in this isolated environment.

As a result of this excursion images of ocean inspired art works were funnelled into exhibitions which were then opened in Tonga, on Easter Island, Santiago Chile and around New Zealand.
