With the spectacle of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, it can be easy to forget that Vivid's delights extend further than the CBD. But there's plenty to see and do up north, too. As part of the festival's tenth anniversary, the Chatswood precinct will present Lightscape, a free outdoor installation that combines art and light exhibitions with fashion and food — the latter of which includes the Light Market.
The market will pop up each night of the festival (May 25 through June 16) from 5.30pm. The central square will host 20 food stalls that have been built from recycled materials and arranged to resemble a makeshift town. Built by event producer Victoria Harbutt and Sydney-based scaffold sculpture artist Alejandro Rolandi, with the help of Randwick's Bluebottle art studio, the scaffold structure of opposing lines and shapes is complete with a dynamic light design.
The stalls will feature some Sydney food favourites, including Mary's burgers, cakes from Black Star Pastry, Agape Organic's hearty dishes, and some scoops of gelato from Enmore's Cow & the Moon.
