The Japanese artist Tabaimo (b.1975) draws inspiration for her animated videos from a combination of Japanese art forms – ukiyoe woodcuts, manga and anime – and her layered, surrealistic and absurd narratives are set in domestic interiors and communal spaces such as toilets, trains and bathhouses.
In Tabaimos first larger solo exhibition in Denmark the audience can discover the artists mesmerizing video works and unsettling narratives, that probe themes like isolation, contagion and instability. Feelings that all seem to lurk beneath daily existence in contemporary Japan.
Tabaimo graduated from Kyoto University of Art and Design (1999). She is one of the key contemporary artist in Japan and participates in major exhibitions all over the world. The exhibition is created especially for GL STRAND and presents the artist through video works, painting and works in paper.
