Within each handcrafted perspex box, there's an intricately silver-smithed form that is of this world and the artist's imagination. Each contains hidden messages engraved in Yiddish with multiple layers of meaning within the combination of words, visual puns and surreal imagery.

If you're intrigued by it all and want to find out more about this exhibition, attend Meet the Artist: Nicole Newman on 1 Mar from 6-7pm or 7-8pm on the same day. Meet the Artist continues on 6 Mar from 12.30-1.30pm. Nicole will reflect on her knowledge of the Yiddish community, culture and heritage, and how she's been influenced by it. This event is free and at the same venue as above. Bookings are preferred, for numbers.
