In 2022, Cisternerne presents Multiple Realities, an exhibition created by Chiharu Shiota.

Join us underground and experience a dreamlike parallel world, when the Japanese-born artist, Chiharu Shiota, takes on the dark chambers of Cisternerne with the exhibition, Multiple Realities.

Cisternerne is transformed into a both magical and unsettling place. Chiharu Shiota embraces the sensuous potential of the space and converts Cisternerne to a dreamlike scenery, where deeper layers of the human psyche find an aesthetic expression in rotating dresses, reflections, and maze-like yarn structures.
As one moves further into the darkness, the colonnades of Cisternerne double in the underlying water surface. Concurrently with the works getting more dynamic and turbulent, the clear water sets in motion and transforms Cisternerne into a both magical and unsettling place.

Like nobody else, Shiota manages to unite the monumental and fragile in her seductive exhibitions. She is particularly known for her large-scale thread installations that resemble a spider’s web and transform entire museums and galleries into a labyrinthine experience, often with personal objects incorporated in the works. Cisternerne and the possibility of working with water fascinated her, and a big part of the exhibition is experienced from walkways above the water surface, which lead you deeply into Shiota’s uncanny universe.
