ROPE


Rope is a handmade rope of 60m long and 28cm thick. It weighs 196 kg. Rope is too big to be used as a rope. Nevertheless, 'use' is its purpose. Spincemaille travels around with Rope and tries to embed it temporarily in places and local communities. Although Rope always remains an impenetrable and elusive part of reality, its mere presence makes the world visible in a new way. During these trips Rope writes a journal. The journals can be consulted on www.rope.blue/journal.

In addition to Rope, Atelier Ief Spincemaille also creates hand-woven Ropes of 12 and 6 meters. Find out more on Rope at www.rope.blue
