shiota’s installation ‘uncertain journey’ fills blain|southern’s central space with dense webs of red yarn that seemingly grow from the ceiling and surrounding walls. stretching throughout the volume, the complex mesh labyrinth reaches down towards a series of hollow, sculptural boat hulls that rest on the floor of the gallery. the blood red color of the yarn is laden with symbolism, alluding to the interior of the body, while the thin thread strands refer to the neural connections in the brain. the boat skeletons — enclosed by the vibrant canopy overhead — intend to raise existential questions of fate and belonging, evoking musings that can be as complex as the tangled yarn itself.
