Chiharu Shiota at Lost in Lace

One of my favourite pieces in the Lost in Lace exhibition at Birmingham is Chiharu Shiota’s ‘After the dream’, in which five oversized, ghostly white dresses are trapped in a tangled web of black threads.

Visiting the exhibition again last week I noticed that as the threads in the installation have become more dusty with time, the effect has become more spooky. An experience enhanced by the light streaming through them.
