Naima Karlsson | Performance

Moki Cherry

On the occasion of Moki Cherry’s solo show opening at Galleri Nicolai Wallner on April 7, 2022, Naima Karlsson performed within the exhibition space.

Moki Cherry (1943 – 2009, Sweden) worked between mediums, bringing together art, architecture, design and music.

Describing her life, work and practice as intertwined—“home as stage and stage as home”—themes of functionality, spirituality and everyday life came together to create immersive and dynamic works that were meant to fit into multiple contexts and places. These intentions and social underpinnings of Cherry’s vision are increasingly relevant today. Alongside her partner and frequent collaborator, musician Don Cherry (1936 – 1995, USA), Moki’s works adorned musical stages, homes, theatres, art galleries and a multitude of other venues from the 1960s onwards, throughout her life.
