The Fate of Things: Memory Objects and Art
2nd November 2018 to 28th February 2019
Sydney Jewish Museum, 148 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst
In The Fate of Things: Memory Objects and Art, two Australian-born artists remember their families’ Holocaust experiences through inherited objects, remnants and relics. For this exhibition, Anne Zahalka and Sylvia Griffin have undertaken a process of self-discovery by imbuing tangible symbols of their family histories with personal interpretations of their second-hand traumatic memories. Through video, photography, assemblage, sculpture and textiles, the artists memorialise lost family members never met, particularly female predecessors, to trace who they are today and how their characters have been formed over time.
This exhibition is presented by Sydney Jewish Museum
