CHIHARU SHIOTA

FREER GALLERY OF ART / ARTHUR M. SACKLER GALLERY, SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION, WASHINGTON, USA  

Du 30 août 2014 au 07 juin 2015 Japanese performance and installation artist Chiharu Shiota installs a monumental yet intimate work in the Sackler pavilion this summer. Haunted by the traces that the human body leaves behind, the work amasses personal memories of lost individuals and past moments through an accumulation of discarded shoes and notes collected by the artist. Visit the Sackler pavilion during museum hours between Monday, August 18, and Thursday, August 21, to see Shiota’s progress on the installation. (…)
