The Crossing (2018) for the 2018 Melbourne Art Fair.

Chiharu Shiota is best known for intricate and large-scale installations that explore complex relationships between body and mind.

She maps elusive sensations of emotion and memory by weaving tangible objects – clothing, books, musical instruments, furniture, and even an incinerated piano – into extensive, tangled webs created with hundreds of meters of delicate thread.

By capturing objects in this way, the artist creates atmospheric, otherworldly environments that inspire reflection on things past and meditation on future dreams.
