Mika Tajima: Regulation

London  21 January - 6 March 2021
Regulation intimates what remains hidden as well as the agency and concordant freedom of being uncontainable, unreachable, ineffable, and unknowable.

Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by New York-based conceptual artist Mika Tajima. For her debut solo exhibition in the UK, Tajima presents new paintings, textile works, and sculptures that focus on psychic and bodily energy under the regulation of technocapitalism. The exhibition connects the industrial production of energy and computational power to the maintenance of a fully realised productive self. Among other linkages, Regulation renders a relationship between a commercial fusion energy company and a group meditation startup. Indexing forms of technologies and ideologies that shape us as subjects, the work — perforated, formed, inverted, woven and enmeshed — materialises the unseen, contactless forces from within and beyond. The exhibition will include new works from the artist’s ongoing Art d’Ameublement, Negative Entropy, and Pranayama series, as well as a new group of glass sculptures titled Anima.
