塩田千春(盐田千春),日本装置艺术家,1972年出生于大阪,曾在京都精华大学和德国多所院校学习。自1996年以来,她一直在柏林工作和生活。在德国学习期间,她是行为艺术家玛丽娜·阿布拉莫维奇的学生。她的作品将装置实践与表演艺术的多方面相结合。她以巨大的、缠绕房间的线网或胶皮软管而闻名,并将抽象的网络与具体的日常物品如钥匙、窗户、衣服、鞋子、船只和手提箱连接起来。除了装置作品,她还经常与舞蹈设计师和作曲家,如細川俊夫、Sasha Waltz 和 Stefan Goldmann等合作歌剧、音乐会和舞蹈项目。2014年,她被日本基金会选为第56届威尼斯双年展日本馆的艺术家。2019年,东京森美术馆举办了她迄今为止最大规模的个人回顾展 “颤抖的灵魂”。

Chiharu Shiota (born 1972) is a Japanese installation artist. She has been living and working in Berlin since 1996. Shiota was born in Osaka, and studied at the Seika University in Kyoto and at various schools in Germany. While in Germany, she was a student of Marina Abramović. Shiota’s oeuvre links various aspects of art performances and installation practices. Mostly renown for her vast, room-spanning webs of threads or hoses, she links abstract networks with concrete everyday objects such as keys, windows, dresses, shoes, boats and suitcases. Besides installation works, she frequently collaborates with choreographers and composers such as Toshio Hosokawa, Sasha Waltz and Stefan Goldmann for opera, concert and dance projects. In 2014, she was selected by the Japan Foundation to represent Japan at Japanese Pavilion of the 56th Venice Biennale. In 2019, she held the largest solo retrospective show (‘The Soul Trembles’) ever at Mori Art Museum, Tokyo.
