Oct. 24-Nov. 28

It has been six years since contemporary artist Tomoko Konoike held a large-scale exhibition, and during that time she has reconsidered the value of art. After experiencing the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake she came to believe that all man-made things were a form of “primordial violence.” Previous works expressed a love of nature, but Konoike’s new work is conceptually darker, questioning why civilization must destroy the natural world. Her new mixed-media works — including a 20-meter-high painting on stitched leather — will be exhibited at the Kanagawa Prefectural Gallery.

Oct. 24-Nov. 28. Kanagawa Prefectural Gallery; 3-1 Yamashita-cho, Naka-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa. Nihon-Odori Stn. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. ¥700. 045-662-5901; www.kanakengallery.com.
