Matt Aitken

Matt Aitken an interdisciplinary artist from Western Australia drawing from his background in Cultural Anthropology, DIY music culture and play-based community education. Appropriating established formats and playfully re-inhabit them anew is a surprisingly “trojan horse” technique in contemporary arts practice.

Local artist Matt Aitken and respected Noongar elder Noel Nannup’s collaborative work arises from a collection of audio and video recordings captured during meetings between the pair held at sites around the Perth city significant for their relationship to Indigenous history. Their work Dandjoo Dabakarn frames a series of meandering conversations that celebrate storytelling, learning and local indigenous culture.
