The exhibition is presented in conjunction with <a href="http://www.ap" target="_blank">the book</ a> released by Aperture in spring 2013. The title is comprised of two Jap anese characters meaning &ldquo\;heaven and earth\,&rdquo\; and is taken f rom the title of one of the oldest pangrams in Japanese&mdash\;a chant in which each character of the Japanese syllabary is used. In <em>Ametsu</e m> <em>chi</em> \, Kawauchi brings together images of distant constellati ons and tiny figures lost within landscapes\, as well as photographs of a traditional style of controlled-burn farming (<em>nokayi</em> ) in which the cycles of cultivation and recovery span decades and generations. Pun ctuating the series are images of Buddhist rituals and other religious ce remonies&mdash\;a suggestion of other means by which humankind has tradit ionally attempted to transcend time and memory.\n\nBorn in Shiga\, Japan\ , in 1972\, <strong>Rinko Kawauchi</strong> lives and works in Tokyo. She began her career with the sensational\, simultaneous publication of three books:&nbsp\;<em>UTATANE</em> \,<em>&nbsp\;HANABI</em> \,<em>&nbsp\;</em> and&nbsp\;<em>HANAKO</em> &nbsp\;(Little More\, 2001). With these works\, she became recognized for her uncanny ability to photographically transf orm everyday details into significant existential ruminations. Since her debut\, Kawauchi has published numerous monographs\, including&nbsp\;<em> Illuminance</em> &nbsp\;(Aperture\, 2011) and&nbsp\;<em>Ametsuchi</em> &nb sp\;(Aperture\, 2013)\, and has been widely exhibited\, including shows a t the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography\; ARGOS Centre for Art and Media\, Brussels\; Museu de Arte Moderna de S&atilde\;o Paulo\; Photogra phers&rsquo\; Gallery\, London\; and Foundation Cartier pour l&rsquo\;Art Contemporain\, Paris.
