“Tabaimo is known for her skilfully drawn and disturbing animations that mix imagery from contemporary Japanese life with digital video technique”

Throughout her eleven years of practice the artist has created satirical works that often comment on modern life in Japan, and in particular on the way her own generation attempts to reconcile the realities of today with traditional Japanese values. Tabaimo draws inspiration from a variety of sources, not least from the media and her own personal experience. Tabaimo’s work pulsates with a sense of immediacy that invites viewers to respond to them instinctively rather than react to them through acquired or preconceived knowledge.

Released on the occasion of the exhibition Tabaimo: Boundary Layer at Parasol unit, London, 26 May – 6 August 2010, the publication includes full-page colour reproductions of the large-scale video installations featured in the show, including Japanese Kitchen (1999), hanabi-ra (2003), guigunorama (2006), public conVENience (2006) and yudangami (2009).

It also features two insightful essays by Dr. Ziba Ardalan, director and curator of Parasol unit, London, and JJ Charlesworth, art critic and online editor of Art Review magazine.
