Chiharu Shiota’s Striking Key Installation


Earlier this summer artist Chiharu Shiota unveiled her whimsical installation ‘The Key in the Hand‘ at the 2015 Venice Biennale. The sprawling artwork incorporates several old wooden boats, above which a dense cave-like network of red string suspends 50,000 donated keys. Though we wrote about the piece here on Colossal back in May, this video filmed by Sergey Khodakovskiy gives a fantastic sense of what it was like to walk through the artwork if you couldn’t make it to Venice.
