This event has ended.
In her latest solo exhibition at Yuka Tsuruno Gallery after approximately 3 years, Tomona Matsukawa presents her most recent large scale paintings based on the interviews of multiple women living in Tokyo, tracing their habits and lifestyles through the intimate paraphernalia which surrounds them from old red stilettos with grazed heels, a salmon pink dress dropped upon floor, a scar on the body, evoking emblematic struggles of women on both a personal and societal level in the 21st century. The unrepaied damages, suggested carelessness, and deformities of the objects thus are a symbolic rebellion, an empowerment of women against traditionally assigned female qualities.
