Human existence.

Confronting fundamental human concerns such as life, death and relationships, Shiota explores human existence throughout various dimensions by creating an existence in the absence either in her large-scale thread installations that include a variety of common objects and external memorabilia or through her drawings, sculptures, photography and videos.


His artistic language was nourished by the influences of these precursors such as Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse, Ana Mandieta, both at the level of physical experimentation and work on the unconscious, as well as through the choice of material such as thread and textiles. His work mixes body art, performance and above all spectacular installations. For this, she uses black or red wool which she intertwines like a gigantic spider web. If she does not portray herself inside, she uses objects such as shoes, suitcases, beds… She therefore really has a universe of her own and focuses her work on the notion of memory. , the relationships between past and present.
