Bunnies Sat-Wed 11.-15.12.
Glowing bunnies arrive at the Christmas market to delight people for the five days. The adorable bunnies entice the audience to stop and at the same time reflect on the more serious message behind the work.
In the homeland of the artist Amanda Paper in Australia, the bunnies are one of the introduced species that were imported by white immigrants in 1788. Bunnies have created much destruction in Australia. They leave behind biodiversity loss and harm to native animal species. Although those animals are harmful for nature, they still represent the image of fairytale, playfulness and sweet innocence.
