chiharu shiota: synchronizing strings and rhizomescasa asia headquarters, barcelonaon now through to march 30th, 2013

 

 

berlin-based artist chiharu shiota interrogates the concept of space through her installation ‘synchronizing strings and rhizomes’at casa asia headquarters in barcelona, spain. the artwork is defined by a mass of black thread swallowing common, recognizable objects such as a piano, mirror or wedding dress. the rich network of yarn represents the invisible connection between humans and the built environment – conceptualizing the transport of information essential in all the communication. shiota creates monumental yet delicate and poetic environments that not only fill an environment, but define it.
