> DESCRIPTION

pronounced KIRU means cut in Japanese. This solo exhibition of New York-based artist Noriko Ambe is comprised of a specific selection of artist books that were the result of an ongoing exploration by the artist. Utilizing twenty art monographs from artists such as Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, and Tom Friedman, Ambe has meticulously cut hundreds of varying shapes and lines into each page of each book, creating intricately controlled biomorphic and sculptural fissures. Immersing herself in the body of work encompassed by each monograph, Ambe evaluated the nature of her connection with each artist and specific works – this aided in her decision of what to subtract and what to reveal.

Noriko Ambe was born in Saitama, Japan in 1967. She currently lives and works in New York. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is featured in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, CAC - The Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, OH, The Drawing Center, New York, Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and SCAI The BATHHOUSE, Tokyo. Ambe participated in the Art Omi International residency and LMCC, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Work Space program. In 2007 she was the recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant.

Noriko Ambe recently exhibited char-ARTIST BOOKS, Linear-Actions Cutting Project at the Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin, Texas.
