Chiharu Shiota: Other Side
Towner Gallery, Eastbourne.
11 October 2013 – 5 January 2014 (free)
“Upon entering the space you will encounter a series of five doors, which represent a gateway to a dense other-worldly labyrinth woven from black yarn. Woollen cocoons arise from the artist’s desire to ‘draw in the air’ and represent her own physical anxieties.”
This is so enchanting, a bit like being in a dark fairytale.
The black strands are like the hair of a giant.
