The story behind the stories: a new temporary artwork in Potts Point

Artist Fenella Kernebone talks about her latest project, Here Lies Your Story, on show until 16 May

Here Lies Your Story is a text-based mural where the words themselves have been collected from across our local community.

These short stories and memories create a unique picture of a place unlike any other.

Almost everyone has a memory from Kings Cross. This work captures some of that nostalgia.
