TABAIMO, danDAN, 2009, Video Installation, video: 4 min 34 sec video loop. Copyright the artist. Courtesy Gallery Koyanagi, Tokyo and James Cohan Gallery, New York/Shanghai.

Telling absurdist tales of personal and social anxiety, Tabaimo’s meticulously hand-drawn, ukiyo-e-inspired illustrations may most easily be read as works of satire skewering life in her native Japan. James Cohan Gallery’s September exhibition of three video installations from the past five years, all seen for the first time in the United States, broadened the dialogue surrounding the celebrated and elusive 36-year-old artist.
