Naho Taruishi | Papyrus
January 24 – March 3, 2019
Opening reception: January 24, 6–8PM
The focal point of Naho Taruishi’s work has been historical events that are recorded, preserved, remembered, altered or forgotten. Her references range from ancient documentations to maps, mechanical inventions for expeditions, photography, films and architecture. The image depicted in Papyrus, 2018, a new copperplate intaglio print edition, is derived from a found letter in Pompeii dating back approximately 2000 years. The faded written message is no longer decipherable, yet the papyrus has become an object preserving the trace of communication generated from an unknown sender to a recipient. Through etched line and burnished aquatint tones emerge a sense of time that constantly overwrites our perception of things around us, and inquires into the ways in which we document events in visual forms.
 

Naho Taruishi was born in Tokyo, Japan and currently 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, Show Room, and White Box, 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 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. She also has received fellowships from The Drawing Center, the MacDowell Colony, the Watermill Center, and Atlantic Center for the Arts.
