Not to upstage Michael Parekowhai for a moment, but we knew in some file or other, we had a picture of a giant pink rabbit out on a hill somewhere in Italy. And here it is. It’s 200 feet long and is located on the side of the Colletto Fava mountain in Northern Italy. It was designed by the Viennese art group Gelitin and is supposed to stay in place until 2025. Gelitin are the same people who, early one morning, removed a window on one of the top floors of the World Trade Center, pushed out a narrow balcony and posed on it for a photographer in a helicopter. That completely unsanctioned and strangely prescient performance was called the B-Thing.
