Chiharu Shiota: Beyond Time
Acclaimed installation and performance artist Chiharu Shiota has created an awe-inspiring, site-specific installation of thread within the beautiful 18th-century Chapel. Shiota’s work for YSP responds to and activates the unique architecture and heritage of the Chapel. Exemplary of her work’s resonance with memory and human relationships through the use of objects, the installation has interlaced the physical with conceptual to create a new visual plane – as if painting in mid-air. Embracing all who enter within an extraordinary experience, Shiota’s project references the Chapel’s rich history and years of human presence, dating back to 1744, making poignant allusion to the bells that were rung, the songs that were sung, and the lives that revolved around it, from cradle to grave.

CHIHARU SHIOTA - Labyrinth of Memory
Chiharu Shiota is a Japanese performance and installation artist haunted by the traces that the human body leaves behind. She is best known for collecting discarded objects and notes to create room-filling, monumental yet delicate, poetic environments. Central to the artist’s work are the themes of remembrance and oblivion, dreaming and sleeping, traces of the past and childhood, and dealing with anxieties. Shiota finds diverse visual expressions for these subject matters, the most celebrated being impenetrable installations made of black thread which often enclose various household and everyday, personal objects: a burnt-out piano, a wedding dress, a lady’s mackintosh, sometimes even the sleeping artist herself. Shiota studied at Kyoto Seika University, Canberra School of Art, and Berlin University of the Arts with Marina Abramovic and Rebecca Horn. Her work has been presented at the Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh, 2013), Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (United Kingdom, 2012), National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (2007), Neue Nationalgalerie (Berlin, 2006), and MoMA PS1 (New York City, 2003), as well as the Biennials in Venice, Fukuoka, and Yokohama. Born in Osaka, Japan, in 1972, Shiota currently lives and works in Berlin. http://www.strozzina.org/en/artists/chiharu-shiota/

Timelapse video of installation "A Walk through the Line" by Chiharu Shiota
At Fabrica’s Cave the famous artist Chiharu Shiota has installed one of her spectacular installations “A Walk through the Line.” The installation is made entirely of red thread and took more than 12 days to be completed. 12 people worked everyday to complete the installation following a specific technique. “The red string symbolizes the connection between human beings throughout a timeline or individual history”, as the artist says. Each person has their own timeline, their own vision of past, present and future and theses lines intertwine creating an intimate reality within space and time. The installation is part of "Terra Mediterranea: In Action", a project that includes a major contemporary art exhibition, an international conference and a series of parallel actions with the participation of a great number of artists from Cyprus and abroad. The project is organised by the Pierides Foundation and the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre (NiMAC) and is curated by Dr Yiannis Toumazis. Α collaboration between European Capital of Culture - Pafos2017 and the EU-Japan Fest Committee

The Iconic Public Sculpture Art of Jaume Plensa | Brilliant Ideas Ep. 11
Born in 1955 in Barcelona, Plensa is a renowned sculptor and public artist. Monumental public works, such as the sculpture of a young woman’s head or life-size humanoid figures, have become emblematic of the artist and found in cities as diverse as Rio de Janeiro, Calgary, New York and Tokyo. Although at first glance, the installations appear as mere iterations of traditional sculpture, the artist’s intention lies beyond the material representation. Plensa is a beloved figure in all of the cities his work is located, not least because his art is inspirational to locals. It is because the artist creates physical forms that give rise to new, non-physical spaces and opportunity. He says, “art in public spaces must convey something from out of the city.”

String, Felt, Thread: Challenging distinctions between art and craft
Elissa Auther chats about her book, STRING, FELT, THREAD, and the artists and artworks behind it. The book is an unconventional history of the American art world that chronicles the advance of thread, rope, string, felt, and fabric from the "low" world of craft to the "high" world of art in the 1960s and 1970s, and ultimately illluminates the centrality of fiber to contemporary artistic practice. Auther engages far-reaching debates in the art world: What accounts for the distinction between art and craft? Who assigns values to these categories? The study of modern craft has only a few real stars, and none shine more brightly than Elissa Auther. This is a book to be welcomed by historians, artists, and craftspeople alike. —Glenn Adamson, Victoria and Albert Museum More info: http://www.upress.umn.edu/book-division/books/string-felt-thread

These enchanting installations are made entirely out of thread
Amanda McCavour's pieces — which can take weeks to construct — are as delicate as they are massive. »Subscribe to CBC Arts to watch more videos: http://bit.ly/CBCArtsSubscribe Amanda McCavour's art might be able to be fit into a few shoeboxes, but once it's installed, her work can entirely take over a gallery space...using only thread. McCavour spends hours upon hours in her studio, stitching both by hand and machine. What she ends up with pieces that are as delicate as they are massive — kind of part sculpture, part drawing — that hang from the gallery's ceiling to create immersive spaces. Says McCavour: "I am sort of interested in the layering of small gestures to create something bigger." Translating the initial idea into the finished product is painstaking and requires imagination. While McCavour has a rough idea of what the installation will look like when hung, she doesn't have the chance to test it out in her studio (which is on the small side). So hanging one of her shows at a gallery can take weeks, as she carefully adjusts each component and changes the height and distance between her webbed string creations. She says this part of the process is her favourite, because it's the moment when she sees her efforts come to life. In this video, watch her intricate and exacting process as she prepares for an upcoming show in Stratford, Ontario. From stitching by hand to making parts of her work disappear to employing a hyper-technological machine that's actually a little scary, seeing McCavour making at work will blow your mind.

Les Colombes: Thousands of white doves bring message of peace and hope
(Timelapse by Ash Mills) Just over two months after the nerve agent attack in Salisbury and with the clean-up operation underway, the Cathedral is in the process of installing a work of artwork that carries a message of resilience, peace and hope. Les Colombes by multimedia artist Michael Pendry features a flock of around 2,500 white origami doves that ‘fly’ the length of the Cathedral nave. Les Colombes opens to the public on Saturday 12 May. At the same time, #SalisburyCityofDoves, a community project inspired by Michael Pendry’s work and supported by Wiltshire Recovery Co-ordinating Group, is also in progress, extending the message across the city.

Saving the Watts Towers by Simon Rodia in Los Angeles
In spite of being one of the most unique works of art, the Watts Towers of Simon Rodia are on The Cultural Landscape Foundation's Landslide list of threatened and at-risk landscapes and landscape features. Built by the Italian immigrant Simon Rodia between 1921 to 1955, the Watts Towers site in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles features three main towers and seven other sculptures that he constructed using salvaged steel, wire mesh, cement and a range of found and donated objects such as broken glass, seashells, generic pottery and tile, and many pieces of twentieth century American ceramics. In this video we meet up with Dr. Frank Preusser, Senior Conservation Scientist at the Conservation Center of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), who provides us with an introduction to Simon Rodia's Watts Towers: the man behind the monument, the construction of the towers and their artistic value. Specifically he talks about the restoration and conservation efforts: the analysis, the challenges, the solutions. Finally he tells us why the Watts Towers should be preserved, what it takes to save them, and how you can help. The Watts Towers of Simon Rodia in Los Angeles.
