Great name. Great space. Great work. One of the most inspiring places we’ve discovered in Sydney is the Neilson family's White Rabbit gallery, hidden in the back streets near Central Station. Part pop, part political statement and a whole lot of wow, the evolving collection of Chinese contemporary art features turn of the 21st century works with a focus on jaw-dropping detail.
On our first visit we were blown away by miniature hand-painted illustrations on small antique bottles - painted from the inside of the bottle (with a bent bamboo brush in case you were wondering).
Then there was artist Gao Rong's reproduction of the doorway to her flat (pictured above), complete with stained concrete and drainpipes, which on closer inspection revealed everything to be made of fabric with intricately embroidered details. This kind of look-and-look again aesthetic, combined with the usually quite amazing personal stories behind every artist makes White Rabbit an inspirational destination of international quality. Get to it.
