Art Edition B, No. 51–100
 
  • Limited to 50 copies, each numbered and signed by Nobuyoshi Araki

Meaning literally, “the beauty of tight binding,” Kinbaku-bi, the Japanese art of erotic bondage, has long fascinated Nobuyoshi Araki, who has made it one of his most important subjects. He’s been called a genius and a poet, and also a misogynist, a pornographer, and a monster, but Araki’s work transcends simplistic moralistic classifications. He has said of his work: “There is no conclusion. It’s completely open. It doesn’t go anywhere.” Whether literally or figuratively, his bound subjects are certainly immobilized, yet in the most tantalizing ways.
