‘I Hope’ (2021) by Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota: 10,000 letters suspended by red threads in the nave of Berlin’s König Galerie.

The letters are notes from people all over the world sharing their dreams for the future after a year in lockdown. Two wire boats appear to float upward at their centre, evoking a sense of travel into some unknown, hopefully better future..

You may recall the artist’s 2015 project that made similar metaphoric use of housekeys.
