Chiharu Shiota - Installation Artist
Chiharu Shiota is an amazing artist, using threads and yarns to create these webs that are attached to objects which are caught in these webs. Shiota is influences by fairy tales, old hospitals, dark dreams and memories. Sometimes she believes that reality is her dream and that her dreams are her reality. The Suitcases in one of the above images represents identity and memories of people. These installations are stunningly beautiful but with an edge to give you shivers. The thought and depth to these pieces represents nightmares, and it is so dark that it can give you nightmares.
