Born in Osaka, 1972. Currently based in Berlin.
Shiota’s inspiration often emerges from a personal experience or emotion which she
expands into universal human concerns such as life, death and relationships. She has
redefined the concept of memory and consciousness by collecting ordinary objects such
as shoes, keys, beds, chairs and dresses, and engulfing them in immense thread
structures. She explores this sensation of a ‘presence in the absence’ with her
installations, but also presents intangible emotions in her sculptures, drawings,
performance videos, photographs and canvases.
