Chiharu Shiota creates a site-specific installation of woollen thread within the 18th-century Chapel at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, responding to the building’s heritage. Born in Japan, the Berlin-based artist is renowned for large-scale works such as The Key In The Hand (2015), an elaborate entanglement of red thread and keys, which she made when selected to represent Japan at the 56th Venice Biennale. At Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Shiota has woven a sweeping web of white thread, emerging from the chancery and evoking the musical instrument that once filled the space.
