About the artwork

The artist currently resides in Berlin. During a two-week stay in Echigo-Tsumari, she filled the inside of vacant house from floor to ceiling with a web of black yarn. Woven into the web were objects collected from local villagers that “they aren’t using, but can’t throw away.” The memories steeped in the old furniture, clothing, books, and deserted house are carefully spun into the web. “I am thankful for the cooperation of all of the villagers, without whom this project could not have been completed.” (Chiharu Shiota)
