At first glance, the installation by Chiharu-Shiota feels super eerie, like giant spiders have spun a woolen web over an entire room. At other times, it looks like a painting, flat and melancholy like a charcoal sketch. The work known as In Silence is inspired by Shiota’s own traumatic memories as a child, having witnessed her neighbor’s house burn down. I really feel an emptiness that perhaps Shiota is trying to suggest.
