Chiharu Shiota: Under the Skin

Text by Tereza de Arruda, Pascal Hess, Olaf Reis.

Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota (born 1972) has gained international renown following the presentation of her installation for the Japan Pavilion at the Biennale in Venice in 2015. Everyday objects, mementos and objets trouvés define the artist’s pictorial language and the themes of her oeuvre, in their evocations of memorialization, homesickness, migration, mortality and life. Her well-known installations with wool threads include such items as old suitcases and shoes, keys, pieces of clothing, furniture and letters, which she also integrates into her performances.

In this overview, photographs, film stills, drawings, prints and objects from the artist’s archive comprehensively document the developments in Shiota’s oeuvre and illustrate her (mostly site-specific, temporary) installations. The book is published on the occasion of the first retrospective of the Berlin-based artist and concentrates on her work of the last 20 years.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Wallpaper

Charlotte Jansen

"This monograph captures the unmistakable presence and power of her work – you’ll find yourself tangled in her infinite webs."

Aesthetica Magazine

"Everyday objects and mementos characterise the artist’s pictorial language and stand for the subject matter in her oeuvre: recollection, homeland, migration, death and life."

Culture Trip

Freire Barnes

"In Shiota’s work, multiple spheres exist. The past and present collide. Transience is given form. The mysterious becomes tangible. And at the centre of everything stands the viewer and the artist. These are immersive installations that we could get tangled up in for years to come."

International Examiner

"To enter her work is to enter another world instantly recognizable yet startlingly strange."
