ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts

Chiharu Shiota

Acclaimed installation and performance artist Chiharu Shiota has created an awe-inspiring, site-specific installation of thread within the beautiful 18th-century Chapel.

Simultaneously weightless and all-consuming, the mass of spritely string teases out this paradox of human memory. –The Spaces

 

Chiharu Shiota

Shiota is known for large-scale works such as The Key In The Hand (2015), an elaborate entanglement of red thread and keys, which she made when selected to represent Japan at the 56th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.

Shiota’s work for YSP responds to and activates the unique architecture and heritage of the Chapel. Exemplary of her work’s resonance with memory and human relationships through the use of objects, the installation has interlaced the physical with conceptual to create a new visual plane – as if painting in mid-air.

Embracing all who enter within an extraordinary experience, Shiota’s project references the Chapel’s rich history and years of human presence, dating back to 1744, making poignant allusion to the bells that were rung, the songs that were sung, and the lives that revolved around it, from cradle to grave.
