Weaves An Immersive Labyrinth Of Keys By Chiharu Shiota


Weaves An Immersive Labyrinth Of Keys By Chiharu Shiota

As visitors to the 2015 venice art biennale enter the japan pavilion, a red immersive expanse infills the building’s ceiling and walls, intertwining entrants within a maze of vibrantly colored yarn. ‘the key in hand’ by japanese artist Chiharu Shiota comprises more than 50,000 keys hanging from a cloud of tightly interwoven string.

the web of threads turns the roof into a complex and elaborate labyrinth of materials, forming an undulating path for which viewers to traverse beneath. two rustic boats at the center of the space part the veil of keys, catching the net of interlaced metal and material as it passes over and permeates the entirety of the site.

    1. Hi,
      All my artists, for the most part, are unusual, yes.
      Maybe it’s not familiar to you, I think!
      And, colorful; not quite. Colorful: it is a rainbow of color.
      And here there is only red. Red wires. These are the photos which are illuminated by spotlights.
      You’re never been to an exhibition of installations?

      The unusual, it is there, my interest! Unless you prefer the ordinary or more classic!
      But in contemporary art, few things are common.

      Follow my publications, I’m sure you will find interest, while entertaining you.
      As we age we have more classic tastes, certainly, but that does not prevent us to discover the uncommon through the others.
      Thank you

Artists deserve respect even if you do not like their work; abstain from any negative prejudices! The commentary is a understanding analysis. Thank you
