Using the mediums of sculpture, painting, and installation, Mika Tajima analyzes the evolving and amorphous zones that intersect productivity and leisure, examining how human behavior and emotional experiences have been transformed within the long sweep of capitalist development. Tajima’s research-based practice explores the technologies and ideologies that cultivate the subtle molding of human experience through aesthetic conditioning. In her exhibition titled ÆTHER at Borusan Contemporaryorganized in collaboration with New Museum and curated by Margot Norton, Tajima exhibits works that explore the tension between comfort and submission that is so often experienced in a technology-driven world.
