Installations by Chiharu Shiota: Haunting Thread Art
Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota has lived and worked in Berlin for 20 years, and is known for intricate works that explore the complex relationship between the body and the mind. Mapping elusive sensations of emotion and memory, many of Shiota’s site-specific, large-scale installations incorporate everyday objects, such as clothing, musical instruments, furniture, letters, even an incinerated piano, weaving them into tangled webs comprising hundreds of metres of black thread. Atmospheric and otherworldly, her installations appear to trap individual memories, suspending them in space and time.
