Meet the Makers: Artistic Spaces
Artistic Spaces is a small company founded by two Central St Martins graduates. Since its beginnings, the company has expanded from its origins in Brockley, near Goldsmiths University, to Hackney in East London, throughout the Bermondsey area in South East London and recently took on a new site in North Acton. Formed in 2010 Artistic Spaces has spaces available to creatives at affordable rates without the long and sometimes costly contracts associated with most commercial space.
Anna Bones and Fred Hatt, of Anatomie Studio, are London based shibari artists who enjoy challenging the perceptions of what Japanese Rope Bondage can be and the people who practice it. Through the medium of jute ropes and other materials (such as fabric and ribbons) they create visual imagery of objects and people in ropes that challenge some of the misconceptions around shibari. Empowerment, feminism, consent, diversity, partnership, artistic expression and aspects of body representation are common themes in their work.The popularisation of shibari in recent years has meant that shibari is moving beyond its taboo origins and developing into an art form in its own right. In shibari the model is the canvas, the rope is the paint and brush, and the rigger is the rope artist.
