Chiharu Shiota: Absence embodied
From 24 August 2018
Gallery 14 | Free entry

Recognised the world over for her string installations, Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota’s latest site-specific commission embodies the space within the Melrose Wing at the Art Gallery of South Australia.

In her conceptually driven practice Shiota attempts to represent what it means to be human. Beginning as autobiographical excavations, her installations draw on personal experiences, emotions and memories to create universally resonant works.

‘Chiharu Shiota's labyrinthine installations weave a complex web from waking life and fading memories’. The Guardian

Chiharu Shiota has been generously supported by the Gwinnett family. Presented as part of the OzAsia Festival.
