press release

Inaugurated in April 2014, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles pays homage to the work of Van Gogh while at the same time exploring his impact upon art today. Within the context of temporary exhibitions, original paintings and drawings by the Dutch master appear alongside works of contemporary art, fuelling rich and fruitful dialogues.

The contemporary Japanese artist Tabaimo, whose video installation « aitaisei-josei » we are presenting here, takes her inspiration – like Van Gogh a century before her – from the linear beauty of Japanese prints, in order to create animated films that are the reflection of a fantastical and disturbing inner world.
