Somewhere, on a hillside in Artesina, Italy, lies an enormous pink knitted bunny, on its side, and with some of its insides coming out. The rabbit has been on the hill since September and now lies under snow, bits of pink peeking out. The rabbit is the brainchild of Austrian artist collective Gelitin (formerly known as Gelatin), as well as many helpers and crew, and is stuffed with straw. The rabbit is expected to occupy its Piemonte site for the next twenty years. Viewers are encouraged to climb all over it.
The rabbit, which looks as though it had been dropped from a giant aircraft, mouth wide open in pain and shock, is 200 feet in length and 20 feet in height. Gelitin is keen on watching it decay over time. Before the winter bits of grass had already started to push their way up through the rabbit’s stitches.
