CHI­HARU SHIOTA

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style | Fashion -

Osaka-born, Ber­lin-based in­stal­la­tion artist Chi­haru Shiota is best known for her yarn-filled ex­hi­bi­tions. Shiota is widely recog­nised for her work at the Ja­pan Pavil­ion of the 2015 Venice Bi­en­nale, The Key in the Hand, fea­tur­ing red wool and keys sus­pended over boats. For the Gucci Herbar­ium Room, Shiota used the la­bel’s herbar­ium print in the fur­nish­ings, al­low­ing its flo­ral mo­tif to peek through from be­neath an elab­o­rate tan­gle of red yarn to cre­ate a dreamy op­ti­cal il­lu­sion.
