Holly Slingsby, Knotted Mass II
Knotted Mass II is an artist’s book developed from Slingsby’s 2016 performance of the same name at our pop-up project, Finishing Touch, London.
This work evolved from her research into the language of hair in the narratives of pop-cultural and mythical figures. It took place by candlelight, drawing from a rich selection of images, where hair is both subject and object, exploring its significance in popular culture, history, mythology and religion. Knotted Mass II includes texts and images from the performance, new drawings, photographic documentation, and a specially commissioned text by Beth Bramich.
