Muku Youji: ” Jyo” (2000)

『椋陽児 縄 Jyo』

A cardboard box, containing a sturdy and large-format book with a retrospect of Muku’s artwork, some in colour, mostly in black and white. It may be reasonably assumed that most of the rope-work in the images is by Nureki. The last pages show also some of Muku’s manga.

The title combines the sign ”nawa” (rope) with ”Jyo”. I am uncertain if this in any way is related to Yukimura’s expression ”Jyowa”, that recently was used by Pedro Diniz Reis for a very interesting movie about Kinbaku (see http://www.jyowa.com ).

Limited edition, 1500 numbered copies, this is number 1227.

Muku Youji’s images turned into figurines

Muku Youji’s images turned into figurines

These eight plastic ”Ero-pon” figurines recreate some of Muku Youji’s images in another medium. The come also with small plastic bags of minutely detailed accessories from the images, such as a pair of taken-off panties or a rubber tube for enema-play. These are some of the weirdest kinbaku-paraphernalia in my collection.
