Art. Bonfires. Feasting, wine and community. All in the crisp, clear Tasmanian winter. It’s Dark Mofo time again.
This year the University of Tasmania is once again contributing to a range of startling artistic projects for the epic festival.
This spooky video project at Triabunna is making movie directors out of the local school students. We are working with students from the Triabunna District School to make 'B-grade horror films' of their gardens that will become an underground installation for one night only in Hobart.
Undergrowth: Thursday 16th June, 7pm – 12am, Basement Level 51 Collins Street
A group of artists will present a series of “activating” installations in
and around our Tasmanian College of the Arts Hunter Street campus, including
the Plimsoll Gallery, the loading bay and the campus’ courtyard.

Who could forget the astonishing inferno of Jessica the Handfish at last year’s Dark Mofo? This year, MONA has created a weedy sea dragon ogoh-ogoh. Visit Dark Park to put your worst fears and dark thoughts inside the ogoh, then breathe a cleansing sigh of relief as the darkness disappears in a fiery ritual display.
