Tomoko Konoike

Artwork No. os08

Ringwanderung

Instead of approaching Oshima intellectually, Konoike spent her time exploring the island to experience its natural environment. In the evenings, she spoke with residents in the visitors’ room.From this process emerged works that engage the island’s rough and powerful energy.


Restoration of an old walking trail

Ringwanderung is a climbing term that means to walk round and round in circles when lost. The artist restored a long-disused, 1.5-km walking trail on the island’s north side made in 1933 by a Seishoen youth group.
