Earlier this summer artist Chiharu Shiota unveiled her magnificent installation ‘The Key in the Hand‘ at the 2015 Venice Biennale. The sprawling artwork incorporates several old wooden boats, above which a dense cave-like network of red string suspends 50,000 donated keys. Though we wrote about the piece here on Colossal back in May, this video filmed by Sergey Khodakovskiy gives a fantastic sense of what it was like to walk through the artwork if you couldn’t make it to Venice.
