Invasion Redux

Invasion Redux made its Canadian debut at Withrow Common Gallery from April 21 to May 29, 2022. A portion of the exhibit will be featured at Art Toronto from October 27 to October 30, 2022.

Renowned Ukrainian artist, Mykola Zhuravel, and his partner, Daria Tishchenko-Zhuravel, witnessed firsthand the turmoil and uprising that led to the ouster of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich during the 2014 Revolution, and the ongoing political tensions that have reached a boiling point with Russia’s hostile attack on Ukraine. Zhuravel, a contemporary painter and sculptor who has represented Ukraine at the Viennese Biennale, together with Ms.Tishchenko-Zhuravel, developed the exhibition, Invasion Redux, that first premiered in North America at The Ukrainian Institute of America in New York in 2016.

The multi-media exhibition poignantly transforms their memories of the uprising and its aftermath into vivid abstract portrayals – artworks, sculpture, photography and film – that encapsulate what it is like to live in the shadow of a hostile giant.

Both Mykola Zhuravel and Daria Tishchenko-Zhuravel are working as Artists in Residence at the CNE’s Withrow Common Gallery.

Gallery guests may have an opportunity to observe “art-in-the-making” as the two artists work on pieces that respond to the deadly and tragic events resulting from Russia’s current assault on their homeland.
