October 27 – November 27, 2022

Tracing Boundaries by Chiharu Shiota (b. 1972) transforms EMMA’s open concrete gallery space into an immersive labyrinth of red yarn. Commissioned by the Saastamoinen Foundation, the piece is being featured in a special series of exhibitions hosted in collaboration with EMMA.

After the exhibition, the installation will become a permanent addition to the foundation’s art collection. The tangled red yarn generates “spaces within space“, a signature hallmark of Shiota’s art, inviting visitors on a journey into inner worlds and personal memories.

Tracing Boundaries” will be on display at EMMA from October 27, 2021, to November 27, 2022.

Chiharu Shiota is a Berlin-based Japanese artist renowned internationally for her large-scale, immersive yarn installations. Created especially for EMMA, Tracing Boundaries is an installation consisting of tangled webs of crisscrossing red string. Embedded in this maze are old doors that create pathways through the work. There is no right path or entrance to take – every visitor is free to follow the route of their choice.
