Here Lies Your Story is a text-based mural with its words collected from across the Kings Cross community.

When curated together, these short stories and memories create a unique picture of a place unlike any other. 

“Maybe you ate noodles at the markets, fell asleep in a park, went to a nightclub (long ago maybe), ignored a celebrity, drove an taxi, got a job, lost a job, saw a show in a space long since closed down, put on a show (or 50 shows), ran a business, fell in love, fell out of love, remember a story your parents told you, or your grandparents, had dinner with a friend you miss dreadfully, caught the train and something momentous happened, or perhaps nothing at all, it’s up to you. It’s your story”. Fenella Kernebone

Here Lies Your Story is also an audio work and an interview series
