Opening tonight at James Cohan Gallery in New York City will be a collection of works by Japanese artist Tabaimo. The new work comes after her successful commission for the 2007 Venice Biennale, and continues the use of everyday Japanese imagery mixed with darker views of sex and violence. The main work at James Cohan is titled public conVENience, a five-channel video with floor to ceiling images. The artist, barely into her thirties, has now exhibited in over 15 countries and has been included in the Yokohama Triennale, the Sao Paolo Biennale and the Biennale of Sydney, Australia. Upcoming exhibitions include Japan’s Yokohama Museum in 2009 and Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art, London, in 2010.
