Chiharu Shiota’s powerful installations and performances give material form to the intangible – anxiety, dreams and silence. Arising from personal memory and emotion, Shiota’s enthralling works touch on universal concepts such as identity, existence and the boundaries of the human body. Organised by Mami Kataoka, Curator and Deputy Director at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, ‘Chiharu Shiota: The Soul Trembles’ is the artist’s most comprehensive solo exhibition to date, expressing her earnest hope to deliver deeply felt experiences that reach into the soul.
Exhibition organized by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art and Mori Art Museum, Tokyo.
