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. In addition to Rope, hand-woven Ropes of 11 and 5.5 meters are created as autonomous sculptures.

As part of Art+People, Rope made its first appearance in Les Marolles on November 21 and 22, 2023.

Stay tuned: Rope will be back in Les Marolles on April 8, 9, 10 and 11, 2024!
