ロープアーティスト/ Rope Artist in Tokyo

Rope Art

PRESENTED ON JUN 25, 2014
IN TOKYO @ VOL 115

(in Japanese)

僕は、ロープで『つながり』を表現しています。自然、心と心、地球、発想、母親、DNAの記憶、好きな物、仲間などとのつながり。今自分が存在できてるのもすべてつながりがあるから。それを感謝の気持ちを添えて運命の赤い糸ならぬ、赤い縄でつなげていきます。私、一鬼のこのWorks。

I use rope to express "connections." The connections with nature, the hearts of people, earth, mother, our memory in DNA, our favourite things, and friends. I am here because of these connections.

APPLAUD THIS!

Artist Stories

BY PAT ROGERS
@ VOL 20 ON JUN 02, 2017

While writing for a newspaper, Pat Rogers decided that the print industry was becoming too unfriendly for artists, especially local ones. She decided to try out a new medium--online web publishing, and with that, Hamptons Art Hub was born. Hamptons Art Hub has now grown from artist columns to a sprawling website promoting local art and artists.

Bound. Real People. Real Rope. Real Photography

BY GERRY PELSER
@ VOL 21 ON MAR 25, 2019

Gerry Pelser is a de-facto house-husband living in Johannesburg. He has one wife, two dogs, three bedrooms and a mortgage. When he is not busy looking after dogs or folding the sheets, he takes photos and writes books. He has a lighter side though: he likes to dabble in the art and psychology of BDSM, especially Japanese rope bondage, which is what his talk is about tonight. He is obsessed with photographic lighting and chicken wings, and if you buy him a beer, he will tell you anything you want to know.

Walking With My Ancestors

BY NICOLE PREISSL
@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

Nicole Preissl, an Indigenous designer from Vancouver takes us along her journey in discovering her relationship to the land and its stories. Nicole shares the culture and history of the First Peoples through interactive walks along the streets of False Creek. She uses rope-making with plant materials as a way to connect participants with the land around them and each other. In the end, these are not to be read as utilitarian tools, but tools for the transportation of stories.
