Acclaimed Australian artist and Archibald winner Wendy Sharpe will take over the walls of Sydney Jewish Museum’s gallery space From 5 July – 29 August, using a large-scale painted mural to tell her family’s stories from their Ukrainian hometown of Kamianets-Podilskyi.
The artist will paint directly onto the Museum’s walls, depicting a colourful installation of streetscapes and snippets of her own nostalgic memories from her recent trip to Kamianets-Podilski in Ukraine.
The title of the exhibition, Vu iz dos gesele (Where is the little street)?, is a song that the artist’s grandmother used to sing in Yiddish and Russian. Though Wendy never met her grandmother, this song links to her and also has resonance with the Jewish community and displaced people more widely.
