Bind

Ryoko Suzuki. Bind, 2001.

Description:
The Bind series expresses my inner-self; a grown-up who left the world given by my parents and other adults and acquired my own thinking, and a woman who has to deal with the female sexuality. In the series, I bound myself with pigskins, which have been soaked in blood as a symbol of womanhood, as a symbol of the given world. I was thinking and feeling of my life, in which I had transformed from a child who just took what adults provided to a woman who leaded her own life, while I wrapped up my eyes, nose, mouth, and ears with the pigskin. The series is a record of consideration with the action.
