Luke George and Daniel Kok look at how rope can embellish an object and endow it with subjective qualities, and also conversely how when bound, a person becomes objectified, even commodified. Their rope installation series, “Still Lives” queers human dynamics in rope bondage by rendering strange again the hierarchies of subjecthood and objecthood. For the Biennale Danza 2019, they will tie up a Venetian gondola and a gondolier at Via Garibaldi.
