Netta Ben-Attar’s In the Language of Exile is an aesthetically profound exhibition that encourages conversations around exile and the longing for home. In the composition, the artist renders sheets of klaf (parchment), the same process used for the Jewish holy scrolls (Torah, Mezuza and Tefilin). She reveals the mysteries and inner qualities of the klaf by printing, inscribing, stretching in frames and sculpting the revered material. By adding LED lights she illuminates the raw and wild origin of the material creating an art form she calls “a light within leather” in her combined sculptures and writings.
