Location: Market Square
Update: We are sorry to report that, due to health reasons, the light installation ‘Reunion’ from Kumquat Lab will sadly no longer be part of the launch event for Winterfest. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Celebrating the joy of coming together after months of social isolation, Winterfest 2021 will see the world premiere of 'Reunion' by Kumquat Lab. An exclusive commission, the unique light installation creates a series of technicolour light arches on market Square, forming a circular space where you are invited to meet and join with other spectators. Each 'tunnel' has a different shape representing the range of our individual experiences during the pandemic months. Common space will encourage visitors to interact, bringing the installation to life thus, here, the light at the end of the tunnel is a shared encounter with other people.
