Heads up: Mr McGregor’s nightmare for Launceston’s 10-14 September Junction Arts Festival

Giant inflatable white rabbits, illuminated in stark white light, are this year’s calling card for Lunceston’s Junction Arts Festival from 10 – 14 September. Created by Amanda Parer, the five inflatable rabbits constitute her installation Intrude. Some seven metres high they cast a dramatic silhouette against the urban setting. Intrude will tour the sites of Launceston, popping up at Junction Arts Festival’s hub The Junc Room, Royal Park, Civic Square and Hotel Grand Chancellor Launceston._q1QLXgai_kwrqn6jgMxr__molLHiFTvTyGj8sujR04

According to her publicist: Amanda Parer is an artist who creates ethereal works in a variety of forms, including installations, sculptures and paintings. Her work aims to explore the natural world and its fragility. She has been selected for the Blake Prize in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013, as well as for the Glover Prize in 2008, 2012 and 2013. She has just exhibited in Hong Kong and is represented by commercial galleries in Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney.

It certainly does look like a lot of fun.
