Lora Reynolds presents Noriko Ambe: キル – Artists Books, Linear-Actions Cutting Project, curated by Glenn Fuhrman, and "comprised of a specific selection of artist books that were the result of an ongoing conversation between Ambe and Fuhrman. 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." Visually they’re somewhat reminiscent of Al Souza’s cut paper works, but with a twist. Nice!
