Berlin-based artist Chiharu Shiota's unique works fall under her chosen theme of "walls." Her walls portray her feelings and emotions about her life in Germany. They are also symbolic of her ideas on religion, nationality and other factors that help define who we are, and how barriers can keep us from getting to know not only each other but also ourselves.

Highlights of the show include a boat installation and works based on interviews with children in Berlin; till July 1.


Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art; (0877) 24 7755; 80-1, Hama-machi, Marugame, Kagawa; Marugame Station, JR Yosan Line; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. ¥ 950. www.mimoca.org/ja/exhibitions/2012/03/18/208.
