The Icelandic legend's huge virtual reality project descends upon Carriageworks.
Vivid Sydney is really cranking it up this year, with a truly epic program of lights, music, ideas and live events, which, in one heck of a slam dunk, includes none other than Björk (BJÖRK!).
As part of Carriageworks' contemporary program, she'll launch a huge virtual reality project dubbed BJÖRK DIGITAL — a collaboration with some of the world's best filmmakers and programmers. And to celebrate the opening, Björk herself will travel to Sydney to curate a one-off music event at Carriageworks, where she'll DJ with special guests.
In a response that absolutely everybody expected, the opening night event and the additional party sold out quick sticks. While that leaves the 12 people who actually got tickets pretty smug and happy, it leaves the rest of us sad and confused as to how we'll live a life where Björk doesn't make an appearance.
But hey, the two big parties are just the icing on the real cake. The BJÖRK DIGITAL exhibition will run from June 4-18. It will include a downright must-experience program of her extensive video, multimedia and virtual reality works, divided into five unique spaces.
Entry is free but we can't recommend booking the VR experience enough. It's quietly booking out.
