Rabbit Proof Fence - Rabbits were brought to Australia in the on ships. They are not indigenous. As an attempt to control their spread into pastoral areas and the incredible damage they cause to the local ecology, fences were built.
Years ago in a classroom in Utah, a young Shelece Jorgensen learnt of the Rabbit Proof Fence in Australia. On Friday night she will launch her first exhibition inspired by the history and science of the fence.
