Chiharu Shiota

Musée national des arts asiatiques-Guimet, Paris
From March 16, 2022 to June 6, 2022

For its 14th Carte blanche to contemporary art, the Musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet invites Chiharu Shiota. For her first solo exhibition in a museum in France, the artist addresses the shores of this new anxiety, that of the Covid era. With her threads, Chiharu Shiota weaves an inextricable protective network around a daily life that has become tiny; this scale, which is new in her work, refers to her experience, to the experience of all of us, of isolation in our homes.
