8. Oversized, Infalatable Rabbits “Intrude” in Brookfield Place
In celebration of the one year anniversary of the reopening of Brookfield Place New York, ArtsBrookfield commissioned two giant rabbits, each scaling over two-stories in height, to join Intrude’s five original sculptures, which were prominent pieces of work during a 2014 festival in Sydney. Created by Australian artist Amanda Parer, the rabbits are viewed as an animal of contradiction, since she comes from a country where they have caused a great imbalance to Australia’s natural ecosystem. In her installation, she hopes to reveal the serious environmental message of our natural world in all its fragility.
The rabbit installations are inside the grand Winter Garden space and outside on the plaza overlooking New York Harbor. Intrude will be on view through April 30th at Brookfield Place, 230 Vesey Street.
