Yayoi Kusama isn’t the only exciting Japanese art exhibition in Singapore – here's why you need to have paper-cutting artist Noriko Ambe on your radar
Remember when Yayoi Kusama blazed her way here with a headlining exhibition at the National Gallery Singapore? Of course you do. But as fans of contemporary art will probably tell you, the spectrum of exciting Japanese talents doesn’t just end with Madame enfant terrible. From now ‘til 11 February 2018, artist Noriko Ambe is taking over Aloft at Hermès Liat Towers with (Un)filtered Reflections, a spectacular showcase of intricate paper sculptures – and trust us, she’s one to watch.
The acclaimed multi-media artist is well-known for her paper-cutting techniques, which involves making delicate and precise cuts on individual sheets of paper with a sharp blade, before stacking these handcrafted creations together. Here, she takes inspiration from how textbooks not only represent the potential of an individual, but also their backgrounds, memories and emotional state. Mind-boggled? Watch our video for an in-depth introduction to the exhibition.
