NAHO TARUISHI | PAPYRUS
January 24 – March 3, 2019
Opening reception: January 24, 6–8PM
Using the language of drawings, paintings and prints, Naho Taruishi’s work evokes the sense of expeditions that constantly overwrite our perceptions of things around us, and questions the uncertainty of historical events that are recorded and preserved in visual forms. Her references range from ancient documentations to maps, mechanical inventions, photography, films and architecture.
Born in Tokyo, Japan, Naho Taruishi lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her work has been shown both locally and abroad including at Planthouse Gallery, The Drawing Center, Artists Space, A.I.R Gallery in New York, NY as well as shows at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, TX, and RK Projects, RI among others. Her publication by Vincent FitzGerald & Co. is held in various institutional collections including the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Harvard University and Lyrik Kabinett, in Munich, Germany. Taruishi has been awarded a Polock-Krasner Foundation Grant. She also has received fellowships from The Drawing Center, the MacDowell Colony, the Watermill Center, and Atlantic Center for the Arts.
