Chiharu Shiota – The Soul Trembles Exhibition is coming to GOMA this Month!

‘The Soul Trembles’ highlights twenty-five years of Chiharu Shiota’s artistic practice. She’s renowned internationally for her transformative, large-scale installations constructed from millions of fine threads that cluster in space or form complex webs that spill from wall to floor to ceiling. Shiota’s beautiful and disquieting works express the intangible: memories, dreams, anxiety and silence.

Curated by Mami Kataoka, Director of Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, ‘Chiharu Shiota: The Soul Trembles’ is the largest solo exhibition of the artist’s work to date and centres on these seductive constructions, contextualising them with works on paper, sculpture and documentation of the artist’s performance and theatre practice.



Exhibition organised by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art and Mori Art Museum, Tokyo.
