An installation of a chocolate Easter Bunny that watches not Steven Segal movies but a Ninja Crash course.
The bunny consists of wood, styrofoam and chocolate. My father Franzueli Rechsteiner has constructed the actually bunny for me. The Bunny is watching a Ninja Crash course for future Ninjas.
The Chocolate Easter Bunny (child) is getting ready for the world out there by watching cool action movies.
As with all my work for How to Make a Monster this installation deals with my personal biography and childhood. I am the bunny that is getting ready for adulthood. One day I will be a hero, maybe even take another man's life for the sole purpose of being a recognized hero who fights for a good cause. The chocoale bunny represents on the one hand the pure, innocent and naive child and on the other hand the evolution from child to man - the chocolate turns stale, maybe melts and reveals an adult.
The Bunny needs to be fed three jars of Nutella per month to keep it growing.
