Sculpture ‘Kiewarra Rabbit’

JOINT WINNER Biblio Art Prize 2019

Inspired by The Dry by Jane Harper

“‘Kiewarra Rabbit’ is formed in unglazed Australian clays. It is a grim image, summing up the grim mood of the drought-stricken (and death-stricken) fictional town of Kiewarra. Wherever there is a death in Kiewarra there also seems to be rabbits – the black eyes of Aaron and Luke’s dead baby rabbit; their concocted rabbit shooting alibi; the rabbits eating the crops not killed by the drought; Luke out shooting rabbits on the afternoon of the murder; and the Remington ammunition for rabbit shooting that was used to kill the Hadler family.”
