Chiharu Shiota

Chiharu Shiota is a performance and installation artist who creates large-scale, site-specific visual installations. Central to her practice are themes of memory and oblivion, dreams and reality, past and present, and the confrontation of anxiety. Art is the channel for her to investigate and question about memory, her work is deeply sensational and powerful. I would say the feeling and intensity of her work is totally different from mind, however sometimes is good to see a different way of dealing with humility and deep emotions.
