Chiharu Shiota

State of Being

Internationally acclaimed artist Chiharu Shiota has transformed the TWMA Vista Walk with an elaborate new installation. A double bass has been cocooned within an intricate and dense web of black yarn which then proliferates in countless layers throughout the space. As the artist describes, the labour intensive experience of creating these complex networks of thread is a means of giving physical presence to her own emotional states: “The threads are interwoven into each other. Get entangled. Are torn apart. And disentangle themselves. It is like a mirror of feeling”.

Chiharu Shiota has been appointed as “Japan Cultural Envoy” to Australia for 2012 by the Agency for Cultural Affairs (Bunka-Cho).
