Nik Yourknots (RU) & Asimira (NL)

Nik Yourknotsは、ユニークで折衷的なスタイルを持つロープアーティストであり教育者です。彼の美学と意図へのこだわりは、ロシアとイギリスの芸術機関での訓練と、ヨーロッパ、アメリカ、アジアの様々なボンデージアーティストの教えからきています。





彼の作品は、Vogue ItaliaやTattoofest Magazineなど、多くの雑誌に掲載されています。また、世界中のフェスティバルやイベントでも紹介されています。ニックは、HBOが制作したショーのハイライトをはじめ、数多くの短編映画やテレビ作品に携わる幸運に恵まれています。






Nik Yourknots is a rope artist and educator with a unique and eclectic style. His focus on aesthetics and intention stems from his training in art institutions across Russia and the United Kingdom, and the teachings of a variety of bondage artists from Europe, America and Asia.


As a successful digital designer specialised in user experience he focuses on using rope to convey emotions both to the model and the audience, creating a strong visual message.

Nik's versatile work ranges from photo and video to performance and installation art. His interests reach beyond bondage to include poetry, dance, sound and video design, all of which feed into his work as a shibari artist.


His work has been published in a number of magazines such as Vogue Italia and Tattoofest Magazine. It has also been featured at festivals and events across the globe. Nik has been lucky to work with a number of short film and TV productions with a highlight of one of the shows produced by HBO.

When Asimira encountered rope bondage through her art school graduation project she fell head over heels in love with it and dove headfirst into the international rope scene.


She never really resonated with the assumption that in this society sharing touch with the people we care about becomes rare as we grow into adults. In ropes she found a way to literally get back in touch with people and connect through physical contact and movement. Touch as a language to get to know someone became a driving source in her practice. For her it's not about the rope, it's about the people. Moving or being moved by someone else, both physically and emotionally.
