Chiharu Shiota 塩田千春 (b.1972, Japan)
Chiharu Shiota is a Japanese installation artist born in Osaka, living and working in Berlin since 1996. Shiota’s oeuvre contains various art performances and installations, in which she uses various everyday objects such as beds, windows, dresses, shoes and suitcases. She explores the relationships between past and present, living and dying, and memories of people implanted into objects. To these she adds intricate, web-like threads of black and red. Our sincere thanks to arpeggia for being Artchipel Monday’s Curator.
