Japanese artist Tabaimo’s multi-screen video works immerse gallery visitors within constantly changing environments that combine hand-drawn imagery and sound.

Peering into hidden corners of the human psyche, they reveal a surreal world of beauty, anxiety and horror within. MEKURUMEKU imagines a world of uncertainty, in which layers are peeled back to reveal hidden truths for visitors to discover.

Witness strange events unfold on a Japanese commuter train, peer through apartment windows to see private lives exposed, and venture through a digital ocean which unfolds about your body, revealing nature in states of transformation.
