Tajima’s recent work invokes technologies developed to control and affect the body, focusing on techniques that shape bodily experience of space and time in a built environment where work and leisure spaces have meshed.  This is a space where the human body comes in tension with the machinic body and its constructionist logic of fragmentation and measurement. Recent solo exhibitions include Borusan Contemporary, Istanbul, Taro Nasu Gallery, Tokyo; Raster Gallery, Warsaw; Wadsworth Athenaeum Museum of Art, Hartford, CT; public commission, Sculpture Center, New York; Protocinema, Istanbul. Recent group exhibitions include Castello di Rivoli and GAM,Turin; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Gwangju Biennale, Korea (2016), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; South London Gallery, London; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; among others.  She was the recipient of the New York Artadia Award in 2017.
