On Chiharu Shiota
Possessing an overtly Japanese essence, interwoven with the distinct influence of the artist marina abramović, Chiharu Shiota makes work that is at once profound and complex. Shiota conceives each installation in direct physical and emotional response to the exhibition space. the interconnectedness of all things is something inherent in all her work and to which she thoroughly subscribes. Living in Berlin she applies her very universal spirituality to local physicalities.
