Noose Tie

2000 EUR
With noose ties the idea results from the association in terms of sound-image: a tie in the shape of a noose. The scarlet colour of one contrasts with the virginal white of the other tie. Both were hand-made from wool, the latter to soften the sharp edge of the thought of suicide. Kristof Buntinx did intermittently play with the idea, as a mere possibility, as a final self-destination or ultimate self-discipline. At the same time the design implies control over that concept, since all imagination equals suppression. Kristof is nonetheless aware that human thought is at times uncontrollable. This is where fear rears its ugly head. He does understand that it is possible to be frightened by his designs.
