Artist Comment
The funerals in my childhood hometown were a little eccentric.The attending relatives sat in a circle in a large tatami room and chanted Buddhist prayers with long, long prayer beads in their hands. A cloth with the deceased's name written on it hangs from the large prayer beads, and when it comes around to you, you hold it up to your forehead as an offering.Sitting on the floor for a long time, chanting the Buddhist prayer, and the beads being passed around. A long, long time. Consciousness and the shadows of people gradually become vague. Even if something is happening there, we will never know.

Gallery Commentary
Iwate Prefecture, also known as the "Home of Folktales," is a land that retains many folk beliefs and legends. Kohara, who spent the childhood there, also heard many stories passed down from her grandparents.
Kohara’s artworks are a mixture of local folklore and beliefs, as well as memories of events she experienced. The artworks created from vague memories of what she saw, and they are like a thread of wishes for what might have been.
Having experienced the loss of a loved one, Kohara is searching for something warm between this world and the next.
