Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota (born 1972) enmeshes everyday objects such as cars and clothes in web-cocoons of gray thread. At once delicate and sinister, they suggest an overrunning of the familiar by some alien entity. This volume surveys her works and performances from the 1990s to the present.
