Using aged and splintered wood found on the street, the artist has created a makeshift ode to the rabbit graffiti on the Berlin Wall. The sculpture, 75cm x 52cm, is meant to be suspended. Like many of Deirmendjian's artworks, "oh rabbit" is marvellously inventive. Once suspended, the piece will be agitated by air movement, and become accompanied by enlivened rabbit shadows cast on the walls about.
He states “The nature of the rustic construct and its ghostly shadows may at once allude to the notion of the makeshift conditions of wall and enforced separation that allowed the rabbits to thrive, as well as to the attitudinal change leading to the destruction of such, that lead to their torturous demise. All intents may lead to some unintended incidentals it seems.”

Sydney-based artist Travis De Vries is this year’s NSW Aboriginal Arts Fellow
Working across painting, contemporary dance, choreography, music and writing, De Vries has been a practicing artist since 2006, having trained in Fine Arts at Deakin University and in dance at NAISDA Dance College. In his works, De Vries takes the traditional ideas and mythologies of the Gamilaroi people and spins them with the folklore of the world to create a new story. He explains, ‘I am exploring the melting pot of ideas in the intersection of western mythologies with Aboriginal spirituality that is a relatively new combination when placed against the 40,000+ year of Australian cultural history…There is a fusion when two cultures exist together, an ebb and flow of ideas and belief or the violent clash of opposing ideals.
“One Rabbit Ear” by Kylie Innocente
This shawl was freestyle hand knitted using wool from Germany and Canada, countries who do not detain refugees in camps. The blue BFL wool, a rare breed in Australia, was used to highlight the richness of the fabric when integrating different fibres and colours.
