Landscape Design Project
Peranakan Lights A fascinating fusion!
Spectacular illuminated shapes of flowers, spheres and cones featuring designs by the artistically renowned Peranakan culture will light up this year’s 25th festival.
Supported with funding from the TSB Community Trust this year’s project will showcase the rich heritage of Peranakans (Pe-rah-na-khan), a community unique to South East Asia.
Created from a collaboration between Singaporean artist Sarah Martin and Italian artist Paolo Maimone, the Lights are inflated, illuminated shapes screen printed with designs of traditional Peranakan art - renowned for its rich and opulent designs.
It will be the first time more than 50 of the Peranakan lights are exhibited in Australasia and the second showing worldwide after first wowing crowds at the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix earlier this year.
Come and be fascinated by an enlightening and spectacular installation!
