Artist talk of Tabaimo
27 May 2010, London
Artist Talk Tabaimo:
Admission free, booking essential
Thursday 27 May, 4-6pm
Born in 1975, Tabaimo lives and works in Japan. She focuses her creative energies on animation that describes the dark side of modern Japanese society. She uses black humour from time to time to craft her unique perspective.
She 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. All animations are hand-drawn by the artist and in their execution and use of colour they are perhaps inspired by traditional Japanese drawings and prints.
This is an event to coincide with the exhibition at Parasol Unit, Boundary Layer, 26 May - 6 August 2010, which is supported by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation. Please refer to more details here.
