Now Representing Chiharu Shiota

Chiharu Shiota

The gallery is proud to now represent Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota; who is primarily known for her labyrinthine installations such as The Key in the Hand, with which she represented Japan at the Venice Biennale in 2015. 

The starting points for the majority of Shiota’s installations are collections of used possessions; belongings, haunted with memories, that act as expressions of human acts. Complex networks of yarn are often interlaced around and between objects, linking their inherent narratives and creating a new visual plane, as if painting in mid-air.

A selection of her works, including A Long Day (2015), can currently be seen at Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westphalen, K21, in Düsseldorf.
