THE RABBIT [W]hole by Nicholas Flatman

The Rabbit [W]hole takes precedence from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland by constructing a space unconfined to dimensional or timely realities. Understood as an antagonistic limbo – relinquished of usual mental habitats and processes but reflective of the metropolis – it is concentrated between modernist dualisms of socially constructed and existential realities. It is situated on Bare Island; a weathered sandstone heath and military fortification caught in the threshold of Botany Bay and the Tasman Sea. The project is an allegory tracing Michel Foucault’s critique of reason and the social reproduction of ideology within a morally decadent contemporary paradigm of Western Society. The Rabbit [W]hole is an ontological gaze that asserts space over body in reform of experimental regeneration.
