From Box 13:
“With “Words Find Their Home in Silence”, Ahra Cho brings to light the ephemeral impressions of her world through multiple modes of communication. The installation brings to the gallery fields of color, form, and texture dispersed across media, including painted works, poetry, and ceramic pieces. This series of material exchanges acts as an entry point for the viewer to engage with Cho’s language of ambiguity.
Externalizing her own search for meaning and beauty through these expressions allows Cho to create objects of permanence in reaction to a deep sense of her world’s liminality. Time slows as feelings and stories from the past overlap with the present, connecting the artist and audience through fleeting moments of life shared by an understanding deeper than written or spoken language.
