Jeff Koons’s towering Balloon Rabbit just got some competition. Seven inflatable rabbits have been slowly taking form today at 230 Vesey Street, aka Brookfield Place. They’re part of an installation by Australian artist Amanda Parer, “Intrude,” that will be up through the end of the month before it moves on to Houston, Los Angeles and Denver.
Before you dismiss this as Koons meets the windsock dancer that Ilana brought to the office in Broad City, know this: come night, these lil bunnies will be glowing. No it’s not as amazing as the pink elephant holding a martini glass I recently saw in Tennessee, but it’s a photogenic enough addition to the nearby “selfie mecca” that is Calatrava’s Oculus.
