Mats Undén - Tonality in Time and Space
In partnership with 2017 Darwin International Film Festival, Undén transform's the screen room into an immersive experience of sound, light and projection to soothe your busy mind. The show opens with a new large-scale performative print being created by the artist delivering live electronic noise, and invited dancers Bryn Wackett (Darwin), Jenny Baker (Milingimbi), Putu Warti (Bali), Jinu Mathew (India). The exhibition will be opened by Dr Wendy Garden, Curator of Australian Art at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
Craig Hoy - Near Life Experience
"There is something mesmerizing, maddening and enlightening about raku firing. I love its elemental contentedness, its exciting immediacy, its predictable unpredictability that taps into something ancient. I love the scars the pots bear testament to their experiences and survival."
Craig Hoy is a Cairns-based artist and potter. Over the past twenty years he has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows and his work is held in public and corporate collections. Exhibiting in Darwin for the first time as part of NCCA’s tropical city dialogue.
Kerrie Taylor – Rooted Complexity
Rooted complexity is the solo exhibition by Darwin-based artist, Kerrie Taylor. Kerrie won the Charles Darwin University inaugural 2016 Fledgling student printmaking award, and was invited to present this solo exhibition as part of the winner’s prize. Kerrie’s practice employs layered imagery, mostly using various printmaking techniques. This multi-layering is reformed and reconfigured in a conceptual and literal sense to produce the three-dimensional installations which depict the mangrove world.
