Ropework at Senate House

A couple of weeks ago we were asked to do a small rope installation at Senate House (UCL) for Isobel Williams‘s new exhibition called “The Body of Law“. Pink legal tape was woven into a minimalistic rope pattern that frames the artwork. This was particularly challenging as the rope is secured to plastic hooks that are glued onto the stone walls – an interesting exercise in tension!

You can read all about her exhibition at Senate House in this blog piece.

Isobel enjoys drawing movement, and often draws in the public seats such as in the UK Supreme Court and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, and she records her impressions on her blog

Isobel can also sometimes be found at various shibari events in London drawing the fast paced performances (often in dimly lit environments) where her nimble and agile pen catches not only the performers bodies but also their emotions and expressions on stage with an incredible likeness.

You can watch her explain her interest in shibari and shibari performances in a short clip for National Geographic TV over here.
