Bunny Alert! Giant Glowing Rabbits ‘Intrude’ Brisbane Quarter

Prepare for a giant glowing bunnies invasion! Witness three massive bunny artwork installations as they come hopping into Brisbane as part of the ‘Intrude’ art exhibit from 29 March to 17 April 2022. 



Three larger-than-life installations are taking centre stage at 300 George Street as part of the “Intrude” art exhibit by Australian artist, Amanda Parer. These 7-metre tall grammable bunnies have already toured major cities across the globe and are now hopping into Brisbane’s stylish dining precinct just in time for Easter.

Amanda Parer’s “Intrude” is a series of artwork that invites the audience to contemplate on our relationship with the natural world. At night, the inflatable rabbits get illuminated from the inside, provoking a childlike sense of wonder as these artistic creations fill the landscape with their ethereal glow.

But as adorable as they are, Ms Parer would like to remind visitors that there is a far more serious message behind these installations. 

“Rabbits represent fairy tales, childhood and furry innocence but to Australians, they are also a feral species, introduced by white settlers and leaving a trail of ecological destruction wherever they go, defying attempts at eradication,” she said.

“The artwork, like any good fairy tale, works from both the light and the dark. It has been fun to use these motifs to explore our relationship with the natural world.”



European rabbits were introduced into the Australian wild sometime in the 1800s but sadly have become one of the country’s most invasive mammals since then. Having no natural predators and owing to their fast breeding abilities, these innocent-looking creatures rapidly spread and wreak havoc on Australian agricultural lands.

“Intrude” will remain on display at Brisbane Quarter until 17 April 2022 on Podium One.
