This spring the Warehouse Gallery presents New York City-based Japanese artist Noriko Ambe (b. 1967, Saitama). In her first US museum solo show, Ambe will create a new site-specific installation in the main gallery reflecting the tragic 2011 events in Japan through the use of video projections and her signature large-scale paper cutouts that evoke waves.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe’s work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe’s work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.
