Event Details

Objectification has always been a widely popular fetish within the BDSM scene, especially in connection with bondage. However, the common depiction is mainly associated with the objectification of women, which can contribute to gender inequality, and body dysmorphia. In this workshop hua hua and her model will explore objectification through Shibari, looking at the aesthetics of the body, dehumanization, and immobilization.

hua hua (she/her)

hua hua (she/her) is a Shibari artist and founder of Borderline Shibari, a platform dedicated to creating a mindful and conscious Shibari community. She began the first public Shibari classes in Shanghai in 2017 and spent many years working to encourage a healthier approach to Kink in China. She is currently based in Amsterdam where she is continuing to teach and produce events, as well as expanding Borderline online to provide accessibility to Shibari education worldwide. She believes that rope bondage is a practice of mindfulness and authentic communication. To her, ropes are like a bridge: creating a connection between people and cultures. She is passionate about exploring how Shibari can be expressed through different mediums, particularly through film, performance, and installations. hua hua is currently on a journey of making Shibari and Kink content visible on public platforms without being demonetized or censored. Her teaching style is more holistic than systematic, focusing on intentionality and a slow mindful pacing. She does not teach in one particular style, but rather on adapting the tie to meet the needs of everyone involved.
