Times when bigger is DEFINITELY better; burgers, hugs, nights out, thread installations. This last truth is proved beyond doubt by Chiharu Shiota’s new piece for Eastbourne’s Towner Gallery, where she has created a jaw-dropping piece using thousands of metres of black wool that seem to have colonised the space like some sort of organic nightmare. The piece includes five wooden doors (taken from old Berlin apartments) which suggest beginnings and endings within a context that seems to have neither. This is an astonishing piece of work that probably needs to be seen in the flesh to be properly appreciated, but these photos do a darn fine job as the next best thing,
