Chiharu Shiota, Galerie Daniel Templon, Brussels

Chiharu Shiota is an artist whose profile has risen rapidly in recent years. Her delicate works are freighted with intense emotion, leading the viewer into a solidified world that evokes the themes of absence and memory. Shiota weaves vast environments in tangled black threads, within which various evocative objects appear to float: musical instruments, dolls’ dresses, shoes, beds. Her graphic networks explore psychic imbrications, interpersonal connections. Shiota has written that “the threads are woven together. They become entangled. They tear. They unravel. They are like a mirror of the emotions.” She will be showing her drawings for the first time at the Galerie Templon in Brussels. These are works whose delicate pencil lines echo the threads of yarn, gentle lines that evoke sculptural volumes as well as the artist’s self-image.
