Chiharu Shiota is currently on display at Brussels’ Galerie Templon. The Japanese artist known for her sprawling installations made of woven thread presents a selection of new miniature works that expand upon the artist’s practice of exploring domestic spaces and her “family cocoon” theme.
“An artist who has long been haunted by the question of the invisible ties between beings, illness and transcendence, she reveals in this new exhibition a novel approach to sculpture. Using doll’s houses, miniature furniture and window frames, her recent work plays on the notion of scale, recollection and our secret bond with everyday objects,” said the gallery in a statement.
In addition to the solo exhibition, the artist created a series of drawings that portray unwavering spirals and spectral characters connected by red or black threads, “a metaphor for the ties between spirits,” as per the gallery.
