I can only hope that this series gives you the insight to accept the unknown without judgement and to expand your curiosity to seek out the beauty in the taboo. Shibari is an artistic form of Japanese rope bondage, there are many different interpretations of it’s history, but most of it all comes down to the modification of judicial hojojutsu and the ukiyo-e woodblock prints of various torture techniques. However The Japanese art of kinbaku ‘tight binding’ is primarily aesthetic, as opposed to the more provocative art that kinbaku aims to express. The practice has diverse forms, most notably ‘Connective Rope’ which delves into intimacy, ‘Artistic Rope’ which is shaped around aesthetics and ‘Beauty in Suffering’ to which the subject is positioned in contortions designed to create controlled reactions.
