PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

An Interview with Chiharu Shiota by Andrea Jahn

The Berlin-based Japanese artist develops three-dimensional installations that surround the audience like a psychic space. The most remarkable characteristic of Shiota’s work consists of a gossamer of woolen threads that weaves the space, the objects in it, the performer, and the audience into a unit. Shiota works with her own body and personal found objects, such as clothing, shoes, or dolls, which are like the shells of memories spun into their own temporal and spatial dimension. Shiota is famous worldwide for her elaborate thread installations.
