Special display of Chiharu Shiota’s woodcut prints

Chiharu Shiota is internationally recognized for her large-scale installation art using red or black threads, which represents life and her will to seek presence in absence. Adachi proudly announced that her first three woodcut prints, “Connected to the Universe,” were completed. The universe inside and surrounds us is connected with her red threads as “Red Waves,” “Red Lines,” and “Red Circles.” The red threads of memory woven by Ms. Shiota are fully expressed in this work with soft yet vivid colors unique to woodcut printing.

Chiharu Shiota

Born in Osaka, 1972. Currently based in Berlin.
Shiota’s inspiration often emerges from a personal experience or emotion which she expands into universal human concerns such as life, death and relationships. She explores this sensation of a ‘presence in the absence’ with her installations, but also presents intangible emotions in her sculptures, drawings, performance videos, photographs and canvases.
In 2008, she was awarded with ‘the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s Art Encouragement Prize for New Artists, Japan’. In 2015, Shiota was selected to represent Japan at the 56th Venice Biennale. She received the 61st Mainichi Art Award in 2020.
Her work has been displayed at international institutions worldwide including the Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo (2021); Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington (2020); Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2019); Art Gallery of South Australia (2018); Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK (2018); the Museum of Art, Kochi (2013); and the National Museum of Art, Osaka (2008) among others. She has also participated in numerous international exhibitions.
