"Inspired by a trove of love letters written by his mother in the 1950s as an adolescent girl in Israel, Ghiora Aharoni explores universal notions of desire, ritual and courtship in the exhibition Missives. The letters - which are incorporated into collages, melded with vintage phulkaris and juxtaposed with vintage snapshots and letters collected by the artist in India—fashion a narrative cycle encompassing history, symbolism and imagination. Aharoni's relationship with India and his deep engagement with Indian craft traditions and craftsmen become both the instrument and the foil through which he essays this narrative of longing."
