Saw this documentary last night on the ABC 4Corners program in Australia. Its one thing to read about it but another thing to see it.  Just watch it.

Friday, the 14th April 2017 was the night of the exhibition Black Rabbit curated by Lizzy Marshall at The Slab in Hazelbrook, NSW.

I’d made a new work for this exhibition, Drug test Bunny or Lab Bunny a sculpture constructed from sheer black fabric, wire and buttons squeezed onto a hospital trolley. The bunny is not in great shape. It appears defeated.
