Chiharu Shiota (塩田 千春 Shiota Chiharu) is my favorite artist seen at Art Basel Hong Kong 2013. There are at least four sculptures from this series seen at the show. By the end of my visit I have learned her name intimately .
These series of sculptures all feature the same three raw materials: metal, threads and an everyday object. Their structural construction is the same. Color threads are secured to the metal frame where they travel in midair organically to form a cocoon-like structure to hold an everyday item—a children’s dress in this case—in mid air.
Great art to me always hold one property which is universal—pure magic through the process of an artist’s imagination. This is one such instance. Its presence is beyond what an image or words alone can transpire.

# Chiharu Shiota
Chiharu Shiota (塩田 千春 Shiota Chiharu?) is a Japanese installation artist born in 1972 in Osaka. She has been living and working in Berlin since 1996.
She studied at the Seika University in Kyoto and at various schools in Germany and is represented by ARNDT in Berlin and Galerie Daniel Templon in Paris.
Arndt & Partner was established in 1994 as one of the first contemporary art galleries in former East Berlin with an international profile. In the gallery’s eighteen years of operation, it has presented more than 270 exhibitions, produced sixty publications, and participated in approximately ninety international art fairs. Within this period the gallery has also operated spaces and offices in Zurich and New York City.
In 2010, the gallery changed its structure and location from Arndt & Partner at Zimmerstrasse, Checkpoint Charlie, to Arndt at Potsdamer Strasse, Schöneberg – again launching a new gallery district and adding to the everexpanding Berlin art scene.
In addition to the ongoing exhibition program of the Berlin gallery, Arndt is expanding its operations to the vibrant art landscapes of Asia – particularly Southeast Asia and the Pacific Region. While Arndt Berlin continues to present shows of international talents from around the world and to organize curatorial projects, Arndt also stages pop-up shows in unconventional, temporary spaces in Hong Kong, Sydney, Singapore, and Jakarta.
In January 2013 Arndt opened a project space, viewing room, and Asian office in Singapore: Arndt Singapore is situated in Gillman Barracks, the new art destination located in the center of Singapore, which houses galleries and creative businesses as well as the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA), opening in 2013.

1. It usually takes me years to learn any one artist’s name, and for me to fall in love with one within an afternoon says something.
