KÖNIG GALERIE is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by Chiharu Shiota, a large-scale installation in the nave of St. Agnes.
Chiharu Shiota was born in Osaka, Japan (1972) and lives and works in Berlin.
Confronting fundamental human concerns such as life, death and relationships, Shiota explores human existence throughout various dimensions by creating an existence in the absence either in her large-scale thread installations that include a variety of common objects and external memorabilia or through her drawings, sculptures, photography and videos.
Sounding like a universal poem to perpetuity, this installation bespeaks a wondrous silence that, slowing the pace of the observer, draws them into a meditative mood of reflection on fundamental questions of human existence, between birth and death. Who are we? Where do we come from? And: where are we going?
