Now you see it, now you don’t!
Intrude, takes the form of seven blown up rabbits in the area of Brookfield Place, downtown New York. Conceived by Australian artist, Amanda Parer, who has toured the world with her rabbit installations (London, Perth, Paris and Boston, just to name a few).
Looking at these lightly glowing animals, you might be questioning whether you’ll find the Mad Hatter sipping tea, or if you’ll accidentally fall down the Rabbit hole and start eating and drinking funny potions. But, just like in “How Doth the Little Crocodile”, Parer has different intentions with her work. While attracting the attention of both; a younger and older audience, she aims to awaken environment questions and make the viewer question the blown up scale of the rabbits in terms with our inhabited environment and our accelerating living pace.
The installations will stay in New York until Saturday, April 30.
Next stops: Houston (May 9- 14), Los Angeles (June 5-11) and Denver (June 17-19 and June 24- 26).
