Chiharu Shiota – Relationality

Chiharu Shiota - Relationality - 2018

Chiharu Shiota - Relationality - 2018Drawing directly onto the stone, Chiharu Shiota has created this poignant work, referencing YSP's connection with nature as a celebration of her solo exhibition at YSP, 30 March – 2 September 2018.

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 will respond to and activate 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 will interlace the physical with conceptual to create a new visual plane – as if painting in mid-air.

‘I believe that we are not only all connected to each other, but in the wholeness of our connection we share one origin, the connection to nature. An umbilical cord connects us to earth and provides us with life.'
