Growing a Garden for an Unknown Lover
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Israeli artist Boaz Aharonovitch’s photo-diary documents a gardening project that took place in his studio. Incorporating photographic works and a single-channel video art installation, the archived garden is created from flowers, vegetation, and containers Aharonovitch collected from his immediate surroundings. He cultivated his plants, staged them to create the most appealing images and photographed them, hoping the images will attract an unknown lover. The outcome of the process is a meditation on the fleeting nature of the garden as a metaphor for the passage of time and longing.
Boaz Aharonovitch received his BFA and MFA from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem. His work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, including solo exhibitions at the Tel Aviv Museum, Israel; Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Bielefeld, Germany; Andrea Meislin Gallery, New York; and Braverman Gallery, Tel-Aviv. Aharonovitch has won several awards such as the Rich foundation Award for an Israeli Artist, the Israeli Culture and Sports ministry prize, and Sharet Foundation Grant.
Curator Aya Goshen was born and raised in Israel and moved to New York, where she recently completed her MA in contemporary art at Sotheby's Institute of Art. She also holds an MBA from Tel-Aviv University and a BA in Economics from Haifa University.
