Tonality in Time and Space, is contemporary printmaker and sound artist Mats Undén’s solo exhibition on show in September at the Northern Center for Contemporary Art in Parap. Undén’s solo show follows on from the artist’s performative print as part of priNT, an NT print survey exhibition at NCCA (Feb/March 2016) and co-curated by Undén and Winsome Jobling.
Mats Undén is a Darwin-based artist and musician originally from Sweden, specialising in interdisciplinary and experimental printmaking and sound/electronic art. In a broad sense Undén is exploring how music and printmaking interact outside their traditional frameworks. When introducing music and dance into the creation of visual arts, when do we actually move from one discipline into the other? The exhibited works draw on a series of experimental dance-print performances in Darwin with dancers Bryn Wackett and Jenelle Saunders, and involves a new performance with dance, sound and large-scale printmaking. In partnership with 2017 Darwin International Film Festival Undén will transform the screen room into an immersive experience of sound, light and projection to soothe your busy mind.
The show opens Friday 1st September at 6pm, 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) and Jinu Mathew (India).
