Invasion Redux

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, 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.

Throughout the Toronto exhibition, both Mykola Zhuravel and Daria Tishchenko Zhuravel will be working as Artists in Residence at the CNE’s Withrow Common Gallery.

Gallery guests can 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.
