Once the feet leave the tatami, the rope’s continuously creaking on the bamboo is the only signal remaining to Axel’s senses. Exposed, upside down, his body is nothing but an open shape for the artist to transform. ” Apesanteur ” documents the intimacy of an intense ‘shibari’ (Japanese artistic form of rope bondage) session by the talented Amaury Grisel.
