Tie Up Process

I made the ropes out of glass, which is kind of a material impossibility. I want to create the sensation of a frozen moment and deconstruct visible object. I turned something - which normally has the qualities of binding together and flexibility - into a very sensitive breakable almost not existing shape...filled with sexual tension ....filled with physical and mental paradox. Ropes for me bear multiple and in some ways opposite meanings such as: death and rescue, sex, violence and safety and surviving. Photo by Alexander Lavrentyev. Russia
