Cat Rabbit: The soft library

‘The soft library’ by Melbourne-based textile artist Cat Rabbit transforms the exhibition space into a fantastical Biblio world run by bears, or ‘libearians,’ many of whom represent famous literary characters. Lovingly made by the artist in felt and fabric, the plush library, houses books and animations and a special giant ‘storytime’ bear who invites visitors to sit and enjoy an audio story. The soft library celebrates a place filled with learning, play and wonder – a home for the endless possibilities of the imagination.
