May 10-13, 2013

AMBACH & RICE brings a solo presentation to Frieze New York. Dutch Brazilian artist Pablo Pijnappel is above all a storyteller. His meta-narratives take shape through the use of analog technologies that encompass 16mm film and slide projections. His work elicits a poetic correspondence between imagery and language, which together evoke the enigmatic. Pablo Pijnappel was born in Paris in 1979.  He attended the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam, NL, which was followed by a scholarship to the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam, NL. His work is currently on view at the 30th São Paulo Biennial, Brazil. In December Malmö Konsthall, SE, will host a solo exhibition of his work. Pijnappel’s work has been exhibited at galleries and institutions throughout Europe and the U.S. that include Whitechapel, London, UK, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, NL and Witte de With, Rotterdam, NL. Pijnappel currently resides in Berlin and Rio.
