NOGUCHI RIKA: TO THE NIGHT PLANET. Ed. by Yoko Mori. Nohara, Shizuoka, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 128 pp. 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9784904257333 Bilingual in English and Japanese.
Publisher's description: Part artist book, part cinematic journey, Berlin-based Noguchi Rika's lyrical new publication, To the Night Planet, captures scenes from a bus window she regularly rides in the German capital. Full-bleed foggy and indeterminate images punctuated by random sources of light from the urban landscape comprise this first photo collection in four years from the international artist. Windows of buildings, streetlamps, the lights of cars and buses are transformed into magically beautiful masses of luminosity, mysteriously transporting the viewer through space. Rika is one of the noted artists in the influential photo movement initiated by young Japanese women coming out of art school in the 1990s. Their large, oversaturated out-of-focus color images evoking an experience or moment in time made way for a more poetic and pure contemporary abstraction within photography. Rika's work is internationally exhibited with shows at the Guggenheim Bilbao, the Walker Art Center, and the Carnegie International, among others.
