The Key in the Hand

Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota created the installation “The Key in the Hand” for Japan Pavilion at Art Venice Biennale 2015. The work reflects her thinking of Japan and the future.

“Key has lots of meanings. If you have a key in your hand, you have a chance. That means future is in your hand. So if you lose a key, that means you lose some way of your life. The boats represent the hands, and the hands are holding 15,000 keys, totally around 180,000 keys,” she said.

These keys were donated by people around the world, including America, Japan and Germany. Each key has a story behind and is part of life.
