A surprising place for surprising art.
Art Post Uki is a gallery space dedicated to showing the work of artists from Uki and surrounding areas in what is a truly unusual venue, the heritage-listed Uki Post Office. The exhibitions are curated by an independent panel including a local artist, with a mission to build community and engage visitors.
Stokers Siding Artist Lynden Stone presents an exhibition of artwork and performance from her Sacred Gaia Healing™ project which scrutinizes blatant capitalist tactics that target New Age naivety. Stone states, "these capitalist tactics offer over-valued, spurious services and products that demean any possible underlying merit in metaphysical beliefs. It is not these beliefs that I seek to critique. Nor do I wish to demean people who genuinely hold New Age beliefs, however radical. Rather, my target is exploitative capitalist practices such as co-opting ecological concerns, quantum physics and Gaia/Earth worship to rationalise and promote bogus goods and services."
Lynden’s ‘Sacred Gaia Healing’ is currently at the Uki Post Office until the 16th January 2019.
