Why does she feel like knots are a Summer or beachy piece? Maybe because Master isn’t in to Shibari/Ropework and it seems like a “boating” thing. Hmmm~


Constriction

Stephane Graff, Mermaid, UK, 2013

A comprehensive body of work, Graff’s Constriction series began in 1991. Much of the series was photographed over an intensive two-year period (1991-1992), after which the series was revisited in 2013.

In Constriction, we discover nude figures bound with ropes. Their bodies, partially concealed, are meticulously wrapped in a manner reminiscent of the ancient Egyptian mummy wrap technique. Captured in raking light, the bodies appear incomplete, resembling at times heavy stone sculptures.

The eroticism of a rope-tied nude figure has appealed to many artists in the past. Man Ray’s 1936 Venus Restaurée, a precursor to Graff’s work, binds a classical armless female nude with rope. However, Graff’s nude figures are too complex to be interpreted as mere sexual fantasies. Graff’s subject matter stems primarily from his fascination with the ritual of binding body parts found in various indigenous cultures.

Another source of inspiration for Graff is the escapologist and stunt performer Harry “Handcuff” Houdini, who would often volunteer to be bound and chained on stage before performing a miraculous escape. This theatrical element is alluded to in Graff’s studio set, which often incorporates a painted canvas backdrop reminiscent of a Victorian stage or sideshow backdrop.

Graff’s bound nude figures offer many potential interpretations, making the Constriction series a dynamic, dramatic, and timeless body of work. ~ Todd Merrill Gallery

Yukimura Haruki (雪村春樹) Sensei says in the book “The Beauty of Kinbaku”:”… The shibari is not about knowing how to do this or that bondage, but about how the rope is used to communicate emotions”.
