If you missed out on seeing the sweet treat that is Sugar Republic last season then I can assure you you don’t want to miss it again this year! Held above Myer’s iconic Bourke St Mall store in Melbourne the masterful creators have returned with an live and interactive art installation that is fun for kids, big and small, and that pays homage to some of our favourite Australian treats. If you’re lucky you’ll even get to try a few of them yourself as you walk through the 14 room installation.
The new look comes to us after a sell out 2018 season and as you are mesmerised by the even sweeter eye-candy installations this year has to offer you are treated to a colourful world much like that the lucky ticket holders of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory were, just this time you have more opportunity to interact with the sets that make for fabulous imagery. Celebrating all this desserts the art takes a look at ice-cream, lollies, cake and the iconic settings they are held in, and after seeing the space for myself yesterday I can tell you it really is a candy land extravaganza you won’t want to have missed.
If you haven’t yet made your way to this years Sugar Republic show then what are you waiting for? Take a look at shelf my favourite rooms below, before you take the trip down town to see the live art for yourself.
