Exhibition: Chiharu Shiota – Other Side

Chiharu Shiota, Other Side - Towner Gallery

Exhibition dates: 11 October 2013 – 5 January 2014

Chiharu Shiota is a Japanese performance and installation artist best known for creating monumental yet delicate environments. Towner Gallery in Eastbourne has commissioned Shiota to create an ambitious, immersive installation that will pervade their entire gallery space.

Upon entering the space you will encounter a series of five doors, which represent a gateway to a dense other-worldly labyrinth woven from black yarn. Woollen cocoons arise from the artist’s desire to ‘draw in the air’ and represent her own physical anxieties. Walking around and inside the work, you will become immersed in the installation, navigating the space between the doors, the light and the maze of yarn.
