TABAIMO goes international: from Osaka 2010 to Venice 2011

La Biennale di Venezia 2011 will take place between 4 June and 27 November.

TABAIMO (36) is representing Japan at the 54th International Art Exhibition, and her preparations at the Japanese Pavilion have already started. She is accompanied by her regular team (family and friends), plus the staff members of The National Museum of Art, Osaka, who have organised her there a personal exhibition in summer 2010. Her commissioner is the NMAO curator Yuka Uematsu.

TABAIMO has not become famous overnight. She had to fail first, not getting a job in Japan, she got to know discouragement while studying abroad, she had ultimately reached the point of curbed-enthusiasm and artistic surrender. Nothingness. Self-abandonment. Self-analysis. Self-actualisation. TABAIMO found the strength to rise again. Just as we write this, she is toiling in Venice.

TABAIMO has dignity and style, with an acute sense of respect and hard-work. She does not give haughty orders, she rolls up her sleeves and starts lifting things in no time. She does not expect to be treated differently, she goes out and buys the cake for her staff to enjoy at the end of the day.

The Bosa Bosa Review would like to wish the TABAIMO team an enjoyable time in Venice and a most successful exhibition.
