The Mixed Bathing World Executive Committee is hosting an exhibition of artworks by internationally acclaimed Berlin-based artist Chiharu Shiota through October 16 with “Culture City of East Asia 2022. OITA” Executive Committee in Beppu City, Oita Prefecture.
The exhibition transforms two buildings in the Beppu Station area into dynamic and finely detailed art installations. For visitors to experience the exhibition on a deeper level, explanatory documents are available at the satellite venue, and a booklet is going to be published in Japanese and English.
The work of Chiharu Shiota, which deals with such primordial questions of humanity as life, death, existence, and memories, jolts the emotions of viewers with its astounding and experiential style. The two executive committees believe that the exhibition will be an opportunity for many people to confront the question of what it means to live and find a focal point of hope for the future.
