Artist's Description

My home town, Melbourne, is probably the foodie capital of Australia. And Queen Victoria Market is foodie central. We’ve got lots of great food markets, but the Vic Market (as it’s more commonly known) has a special place in our hearts.

There’s lots to love about the Vic Market. The range of food products there shows how keen we are about adopting different country’s food styles. There’s probably a thesis somewhere in testing the time lag between a new bunch of immigrants arriving from a country and how long it takes for those people’s food starting to appear in a Vic Market stall.

Development at the market has been reasonably sensitive (with one glaring exception) to the history without being stupidly sentimental. The glaring exception to sensitivity is that, true to Ozy form, there is an invisible Aboriginal presence that’s mostly ignored. The Vic Market was built over an Aboriginal burial ground. The foodie sacredness of the market becomes oddly ironical given the existence of that burial ground.

This shot of the deli section of the market. Stalls here rarely change hands. You can bet that that spectacular style of brie, pepper or exotic sausage you bought there 5 years ago will still be stocked today.
