Chiharu Shiota: Beyond Time

Chapel
Future
30 Mar–2 Sep 2018

Acclaimed installation and performance artist Chiharu Shiota will create an awe-inspiring, site-specific installation of thread within the beautiful 18th-century Chapel in spring 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. 

Embracing all who enter within an extraordinary experience, Shiota’s project will reference the Chapel’s rich history and years of human presence, dating back to 1744, making poignant allusion to the bells that were rung, the songs that were sung, and the lives that revolved around it, from cradle to grave.
