Japanese-born artist Chiharu Shiota graduated from Kyoto Seika University and spent some time in Australia before moving to Germany, where she currently lives and works. Her most recent installations express her ambivalence about desiring the security net of safety, love and home while at the same time fearing it to be a fleeting and misleading concept, leading to entrapment. Haunting and dreamlike work. You can see more at the Goff + Rosenthal Gallery, too. Via Le Divan Fumoir Bohémien.
