Chiharu Shiota
Artist

Chiharu Shiota is a Japanese installation artist born in 1972 in Osaka. She has been living and working in Berlin since 1996.

Shiota studied at the Seika University in Kyoto and at various schools in Germany. While in Germany, she studied with Marina Abramović.

Shiota’s oeuvre links various aspects of art performances and installation practices. Mostly renown for her vast, room-spanning webs of threads or hoses, she links abstract networks with concrete everyday objects such as keys, windows, dresses, shoes, boats and suitcases. Besides installation works, she frequently collaborates with choreographers and composers such as Toshio Hosokawa, Sasha Waltz and Stefan Goldmann for opera, concert and dance projects.

Her works have been presented at many international venues, included the Venice Biennale (2015), Galerie Daniel Templon, Paris, Marugame Inokuma-Genichiro Institute of Modern Art (MIMOCA), La Maison Rouge, Paris, NF Galeria, Madrid, Kenji Taki Gallery, Tokyo, Rotwand Gallery, Zurich, Gallery Goff + Rosenthal, New York, Centre for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, Varsovie, Poland, Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Germany, Hayward Gallery, London, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark, KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland, ZKM (Center for Art and Media), Karlsruhe, Germany, 6th Gwangju Biennale 2006, Gwangju City, Korea, Kunstmuseum Luzern, Lucerne, Switzerland.
