Kohei Sasahara is an artist who specializes in installation work. At the start of every project, he collects data such as interviews to get a comprehensive picture of his surroundings and establishes internal and external connections. Sasahara does not adhere to any one particular medium using various methods in his process. On the other hand, his works explore a common theme of “”people’s lives”” by which he strives to connect it not only in the context of fine art but also comprehensive fields such as anthropology, architecture etc.
