The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre will host a major solo exhibition of works by Blue Mountains-based artist-duo Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro.
Post-haste will showcase the past decade of works by the pair, exploring themes of obsolescence, collective endeavour, and the place of the individual within complex systems.
The exhibition will include a variety of mediums, including site-specific interventions, photography, sculpture, video, and sound.
Paul Virilio’s concept of Dromology is a theme throughout the exhibition; investigating how the speed at which something happens may change its essential nature. In an epoch where speed means everything, what happens when nature pulls the handbrake?
Poste-haste will be on exhibition until Sunday 16 January 2022.
