Alice Heron

Sit on It & Drive, 2022 (installaties/ sculpturen)

A brand-new car is hanging high in the air, bondaged as a submissive item. Multidisciplinary artist and cook Alice Héron uses shibari, the Japanese art of bondage, to eroticize the everyday objects that surround us. In the absence of physical contact during lockdowns, this new relation to our environment may offer an alternative to touch. The bondage technique also symbolizes the power of eroticism over capitalist materialism. The shiny car, symbol of capitalism, has been literally suspended by erotic forces.
