Chiharu Shiota

Chiharu Shiota, (Osaka, 1972) is one of the most prestigious international artists recognized for exploring the relationships between memory and loss through the creation of moving environments that represent the space between the inner and outer world of the artist. Settled in Berlin, studied Fine Arts at Kyoto University and then in Germany.

She regularly exhibits in Madrid (Nieves Fernánez Gallery), Paris (La Maison Rouge and Galerie Daniel Templon), New York (Haunch of Venison), London (Hayward Gallery), Helsinki (Kiasma Museum), Berlin (Neue Nationalgalerie), Osaka (National Museum of Art) or Hiroshima (Contemporary Art Museum), among other cities. Her work will also be seen in Moscow, Pittsburgh, Kochi, Eastbourne and at the Singapore Biennial of 2013.

Her work is closely linked to the Japanese notion of destiny, alluding to the fragility of being. Most of her installations are collections of used belongings, filled with memories, which serve as expressions of human acts.

She has recently participated in some of the most important biennials such as the Moscow, Sydney, Lyon, and Venice biennials, for which she performed the Japan Pavilion in its 56th edition. In addition, she has exhibited her work in a monographic exhibition at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo (2019), and in the Linhas da Vida retrospective, which has toured the most important art centers in Brazil.
