Chiharu Shiota

Art & Design

This Japanese performance and installation artist, who calls Berlin home, makes a specialty of creating all-encompassing environments that seem to hover somewhere between pleasant dream and nightmare—grand pianos, for instance, ensnared in dense webs of black thread, as if a giant, classical-music-loving spider had happened upon them.

She brings one of them to New York for this show.
