Voiture 21 at the Vivid Sydney Festival
The inspiring Vivid Sydney Festival is back this year for its 13th edition from May 26 to June 17, and it is not to be missed! This immersive and unique festival concentrates on creativity, ingenuity, and technology while bringing communities together through the captivating power of light. With millions of visitors each year, it will once again transform the city of Sydney for 23 days and nights by sublimating its iconic landmarks and turning them into spectacular works of art using light installations and projections. Not only visually inspiring, the Vivid Festival will also please the rest of visitors’ senses thanks to its program of free music shows at Tumbalong park, and the celebration of Sydney’s culinary culture with this year’s novelty: Vivid Food!
Among the 57 light attractions that will create a stunning visual landscape of the city, France will, this year be proudly represented by the incredibly talented Milosh Luczynski. Based in Paris, Milosh is a visionary artist, whose work takes viewers on a mind-bending journey through time and space, blurring the boundaries between art and technology. Throughout his career, he has collaborated with numerous musicians, writers, poets, and performers, displaying his monumental multimedia installations at many famous locations around the globe such as the Palais de Tokyo, Kunsthaus Baselland, National Gallery Singapore, and more.
The festival will be the occasion for the public to discover his newest transporting work: Voiture 21, a mesmerising project taking visitors on a virtual train journey through dreamlike landscapes without even leaving the city. The abandoned tunnel at the end of The Goods Line will be transformed into a moving train carriage through the captivating projections of scenic footage taken by the artist during his travels around the world. Milosh’s innovative 360-degree capture technology creates a fully immersive experience, taking the traveler throughout Australia using new footage captured earlier this year of Sydney and the Blue Mountains. The project will breathe new life into the disused tunnel and pay homage to the train and memories of travel, while inviting you to daydream as you travel through bustling cities, deserted beaches, snowy mountains, and many more captivating landscapes.
