There is a technique of erotic slavery that often leaves a woman’s body hanging helplessly in an open space, tied with ropes. This causes me a sense of anxiety and anguish. In the same way, I tied the jewels. Long-term experimentation and the search for suitable materials also played an important role. By experimenting with rubber and obstructions, I was able to form bulky creations that resemble growing living organisms. Inspiration for this work was the erotic photographs of the Japanese artist Nobuyoshi Araki.
