The Patchwork Rabbit 

The Sydney Lunar Festival,
The City of Sydney

Adjoining Koreatown
Situated on Liverpool Street,
between Sussex Street and Castlereagh Street.

The artwork draws inspiration from ‘jogakbo’, 조각보, a style of traditional Korean bojagi cloth-making, and uses a collage of paper textures to quilt a patchwork of rabbits. 

The artwork highlights the patchwork of families, friends, communities and cultures that had pieced together a colourful and multifaceted celebration during Lunar New Year in Australia. It is also a small reflection of my celebration during Lunar New Year in Australia as an Australian born Chinese living in a Korean household.
