Chiharu Shiota was born 1972 in Osaka, Japan. After graduating at Kyoto Seika University and an exchange year at Canberra School of Art, Australian National University, Australia, by the mid-1990s she had moved to Germany, initially studying at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig and then at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. These experiences undoubtedly reinforced her concerns with the importance of duration in performance as well as with the intense power of the body – even when its presence is suggested rather than present. Shiota's oeuvre contains various art performances and installations, in which she uses different everyday objects such as beds, windows, dresses, shoes and suitcases. She explores the relationships between past and present, living and dying, and memories of people implanted into objects. To these she adds intricate, web-like threads of black and red. Today Shiota´s installations, sculptures and paintings were presented worldwide in different Museums and Institutions of international meaning such as the Rochester Art Center, Rochester, MN / USA,Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart, , Tasmania / Australia, Museum of Art, Kochi, Kochi / Japan, Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art, Kagawa / Japan, Casa Asia, Barcelona / Spain, La Maison Rouge, Paris / France, Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem / Israel among others. Chiharu Shiota lives and works in Berlin since 1996.
