Art in the Present Tense, curated by Robert Storr, in the Italian Pavillion at the 52nd International Venice Biennale, opening June 10 and running through November 21, 2007. In her animated videos, Tabaimo explores complex issues in contemporary Japanese society. By combining iconic symbols from Japanese culture with images of the everyday, Tabaimo reveals the contrast between the smooth veneer of Japan's urban life and the turbulent problems embedded within it. Incorporating digitally scanned drawings with the palette from Hokusai woodcuts (1760-1849), Tabaimo conflates time and specific histories.
