Konstkuben - Ami Kohara

Art Cube - Vallentuna Culture, Vallentuna

Through Ami Kohara's experience from working as a shelf stocker at a grocery store, Kohara noticed how the different rhythms of daily life affect the imagination. All daily situations require different pace and there is an ideal pace for different activities: work and leisure. The pace that prevails can give rise to frustration and limitations in one's life. Kohara has investigated how the imagination works in such circumstances. Sometimes it expands as an inner force.

"Daydreaming can act as a melody that supports the constant and monotonous pace of some activities, but it also disturbs them. The relationship between a controlled pace and imagination is reminiscent of the music genre rubato, the rhythmic freedom that gives a shade to the music. I associate the daydreaming with the simple fast physical work of the freely stretched tones that ultimately return to the underlying rhythm of the melody."

In her artistic work, Ami Kohara also examines the perception and the gap between experiences, where something from one side can be seen as an illusion seen from the other side, as well as the hedge of an oasis in the desert.

Ami Kohara has studied art at Konstfack, Elektronmusikstudion and Musashino Art University (Tokyo). She has also studied shorter courses at the Art School in Stockholm, Valand Academy of Fine Arts and Stockholm University. Kohara lives and works in Stockholm.
