Atsunobu Kohira

Born in 1979. Lives and works in Paris.

Graduated student of Beaux-Arts in Paris (workshop Giuseppe Penone, 2006), Atsunobu Kohira exhibits in 2013 at the Palais de Tokyo with the Hermès Foundation in the exhibition Condensation.In 2014, he exhibits at FRAC Franche Comté, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, and Hermès in Japan and Korea.

Nowadays all kinds of things are digitized and rapidly non-materialized, and there is a question on how the body should be in the modern society. Kohira seeks the way to express, which does not only rely on seeing but on making free use of all the five senses, and continue making the places and works, involving bodily sensation. For him, “changing and transition of matters” is one of consistent and interesting subjects.
