The magnificence of the Chiharu Shiota art installation at the 2015 Venice Art Biennale provides an awe-inspiring look into the intricacies of the red labyrinth of keys and string that form a tightly-webbed cloud of wonder and excitement.
Located in the Japan Pavilion of this May 2015 event, this stunning artwork covers the ceiling and walls with over 50,000 keys, nets of interlaced metal and yarn that truly evokes a sense of wonder and memories in those who behold its splendor.
Each key used in the piece is placed so as to evoke memories. They all came from people throughout the world, and the artist used them as a means to convey familiarity and value to the things we consider most important.
