"The exhibition was assembled swiftly with the thoughtful cooperation of Berenstein and Lahyani. During initial visits to the artist’s studio in Tel Aviv, Israel in November of 1999, a wide range of works was made available for selection. The works that were chosen for the Haggerty exhibition are organized around a common theme of recycled industrial materials. These materials are deftly assembled to enable the artist to draw attention to societal concerns facing the world today."
