Shiota Chiharu: The Soul Trembles
In a nutshell
Red strings, boats, large-scale. This artist’s work is immediately recognizable to those who have seen even one of her larger installations. But these short descriptions of her artwork are reductive and can’t adequately convey the experience of standing in her stunning installations. If you are in Tokyo, you will be lucky enough to see the largest solo exhibition of her work, which spans 25 years of her career. In addition to several large installations, there are sculptures, videos, photographs, drawings and more.
The Mori Art Museum is located on the 53rd floor of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. Don’t miss Tokyo City View on the 52nd floor - entrance is included with museum admission.
If you visit by September 16, you can see the interactive The Science Behind Pixar at Tokyo City View. This exhibition is also included in the museum admission price.
