YiMiao Shih @ House of Illustration

13 April 2019 - 14 July 2019

During a six-month residency, YiMiao Shih wove a parallel universe in which the UK voted not for Brexit but ‘Rabbrexit’: the expulsion of rabbits from the country. For Rabbrexit Means Rabbrexit, Shih created a series of ‘relics’ from the UK’s imaginary rabbit population, including large-scale embroidered epics, newly minted 52p and 48p coins and aeroplane landing cards for rabbits stripped of their British citizenship. These satirical pieces draw together Shih’s real-world observations of the nationalistic fervor, economic uncertainty and fragmentation of societal bonds brought about by Brexit.
