Opening 27/10. Chiharu Shiota

The Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota will exhibit in Bergen this fall, her exhibition "Direction" opens on October 27th in KODE 2. 

Shiota is internationally famous for her intricate and spectacular works using thread that fill entire rooms and she represented Japan at the 2015 Venice Biennale. Her works in thread combine particular spiritual reflections with direct physical experiences and architecture. In Bergen she will create a unique work for what will be a new exhibition space in KODE 2.

"She will take possession of and interpret the building in her own distinct artistic language. We are really looking forward to it" says Line Daatland, KODE Director of Art and Design.

Shiota’s intricate works in thread have been described as “drawing in the air”, and often include everyday objects such as boats, beds and keys. She also makes use of photographs and videos in many of her installations.
