Rope is a rope. It is 60m long and 28cm thick. Because Rope is made to big, it lost it’s function as a rope.

Ief Spincemaille travel with Rope to local communities, organisations and cities. He tries to connect it with people and things. Although Rope always remains an impenetrable and elusive part of reality, its mere presence makes the world and itself visible in a new way. It disrupts existing connections, brakes the world apart, and creates a space of freedom and transfer where what exists can be shaped in different new directions. 

As part of Art+People, Rope performed in les Marolles on November 21 and 22, 2023.
