2017 DIFF


Art House is DIFF's art program, which lets artists break free from the traditional art form. DIFF will host Mats Unden (Darwin based artist and musician originally from Sweden) and also Lanjani Marika (the oldest living member of the Rirratjingu clan in East Arnhem Land). Mats Unden will transform Northern Centre for Contemporary Art's (NCAA) screening room into a place to experience sound and light and transform electronic noise combined with beautiful dance by Bryn Wackett.

"Tonality in Time and Space" by Mats Unden will be held on Friday 1st September 2017 at 6pm. Lanjani Marika's piece of art is formed of 6 pieces of video installations and will be on display on Saturday 23rd September 2017 at 6pm and will be taking place at Darwin Visual Art Association. This show will combine Marika's knowledge about bush medicine, local botany and her colour knowledge.
