Chiharu Shiota (b. 1972, Osaka) intertwines objects in web-like installations. In contrast to her work The Key in the Hand, shown at the 2015 Venice Biennale, there are only three keys in Uncertain Journey – a reference to the keys in Ostend’s coat of arms. The web symbolizes the branching in the human brain, but also the complex network of human relationships, which we are all part of. The boat symbolizes our life path: a turbulent journey with an intangible final destination.
