To celebrate its tenth anniversary last year, Chippendale's White Rabbit Gallery launched a huge two-part retrospective. The first half, dubbed Thenfeatured giant pink fibreglass undies, a porcine car with an 11-metre gold tongue and 30 life-sized naked figures.

Now, the follow-up exhibition has been announced. Called, fittingly, And Now, it showcases 15 key works from the second part of White Rabbit's life: 2011–2019. Come Wednesday, March 11, the three-storey gallery will be filled with videos, giant sculptures, paintings and performative pieces.

'Invocation for a Wandering Lake' by Patty Chang

A three-part video installation by Liu Chuang will see Stephen Spielberg, Zhou Dynasty bells and bitcoin come together (figuratively) to explore issues of displacement in Bitcoin Mining and Field Recordings of Ethnic Minorities, while Zhu Jinshi's The Ship of Times — made from 14,000 sheets of xuan paper, 1800 pieces of fine bamboo, and 2000 cotton threads — will symbolise spiritual transformation. The latter recently travelled to the National Gallery of Victoria for an impressive White Rabbit exhibition.

You'll also find a tall pillar of red glass by ceramicist Liu Jianhua, a performative video piece by Patty Chang in which she washes a rotting whale carcass, and two works by provocative artist, and former Ai Wei Wei studio assistant, Zhao Zhao.
