The Japan Foundation is delighted to announce that artist Chiharu Shiota will represent Japan at the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, to be held from 9 May to 22 November 2015. Shiota will present the exhibition entitled 'The Key in the Hand', curated by Hitoshi Nakano, Curator of the Kanagawa Arts Foundation. Through her work Shiota, who gave an artist talk at the Japan Foundation, London in 2013, explores questions such as "What does it mean to be alive?" and "What is existence?" in large-scale installations that make use of a variety of media including sculptural elements, photography, and video.
