In 2018 Ief Spincemaille created the artwork ‘Rope’: a rope of 60 meters in length and 30 cm in diameter. Rope has been made disproportionately large and has therefore lost its function. Spincemaille travels around the world with Rope to give it new meaning. Besides creating a great artwork, Spincemaille reinvented seating without realizing it. Ropes of 12 and 6 meters are currently being used by cities, companies and private customers, to create temporary social spaces, to play and to knot shapes and encounters. And with a mobile braiding workshop, Rope can be braided in-situ with or without the help of the local community or customer. Rope, just as many of the Ateliers other works, is a social sculpture: a medium which brings imagination and people together. Do something with Rope!

A writing Rope
In 2017 Spincemaille create the artwork Rope: a blue Rope of 60 meters long and 30 cm in diameter. Rope has been made disproportionately large and has therefore lost its function as a rope. Ief Spincemaille travels with Rope to give it new function and meaning. During these travels Rope writes a daily journal about it’s experiences.

Rope is a social sculpture. It receives meaning through the interactions with people and places. Like a camera or brush, it is a medium for imagining another reality and creating stories. Stories that arise from the inspiration, dynamics and energy of the place where Rope is hosted. Creations with Rope are therefore fundamentally open: the interaction with different people and places with their own value systems, dreams and goals are the building blocks of the creative process. As an outsider who does not have to abide by existing protocols, Rope enters new arenas every time, with the urge to discover, to change, and - especially – to reinvent himself.
You can braid your own Rope with our mobile braiding installation. A great way for you to bring communities together and for us to present the techniques and ideas behind this artwork.
