This event has ended.

James Cohan Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Japanese artist, Tabaimo, opening March 14 and running through April 12, 2008. This second gallery exhibition follows the artist's highly acclaimed commission, "dolefullhouse," for Robert Storr's Venice Biennale 2007, "Think With the Senses—Feel With the Mind." Well known for her Ukiyo-e, wood-block style animations that depict scenes of everyday Japanese life set in family homes, commuter trains, and public bathhouses, Tabaimo twists quotidian realities with darker visions of violence, sex and death, rendered in an unemotional, matter-of-fact way. The resulting tensions in the artist's work - between traditional and contemporary, hand drawn and digitally manipulated, public and private, social advances and societal ills – are at the crux of Tabaimo's artistic practice, and have garnered her international attention.

    Video Installation in Translation: an interview with Tabaimo

    "The feedback I really take to heart comes from the audiences who come to my show and talk to me there. I feel like I’ve been going around collecting these opinions on an individual basis, because personal thoughts are what I remember the most."
