The connective tissue of installation artist Chiharu Shiota

In 2015, Chiharu Shiota used ten thousand staples and more than two thousand balls of wool to transform the Japanese pavilion into the revelation of the Venice Biennale. The Japanese, Berlin-based artist is well-known for her meticulous installations in red wool, which represent our interweaving.

At Galerie Templon she is trying something different. Her immersive installation there, which consists of a forest of suspended black umbrellas, refers to a dark moment in her own life: the cancer that reappeared in 2017, after twelve years of absence. Inspired by this darkness, she is creating new work that makes suffering shareable. Connective tissue.
