Museum Sinclair-Haus: Chiharu Shiota “Line of Thought”

Bad Homburg v.d. Höhe, March 31 – June 16, 2019, https://www.museumsinclairhaus.com

Before visiting the show I had a faint idea about the artist´s work based on the news I glimpsed from the 2015 Venice Biennial: boat, read threads, keys.. Somehow this artist branding was confirmed. There was a lot of red, there were threads, there was some mud too (“mother Earth / womb”). And a piano. And a boat.

Red threads somewhat stereo-typically related to feminity and blood..

The Sinclair-House was a neat place, with very white walls, well lit. All exhibits were installed flawlessly. But somehow, the exhibit appeared a bit one-dimensional to me.
