The Jewish sculptor and photographer Gitl Braun, pictured, has chosen what at first sight is an unlikely location for her forthcoming exhibition, Eve’s Daughters, in east London next month. It’s going to be at the Jagonari Women’s Educational Resource Centre in Whitechapel Road, more usually used by local Bengali women. But Braun, a mother of eight from Stamford Hill and wife of the Hebrew novelist Marton Braun, believes her work illustrates similarities between the Bengali and Jewish immigrant experiences in the East End. The Haifa-born daughter of Holocaust survivors took up art only 10 years ago but graduated from Central St Martins college of art last year with distinction.
