Holly Slingsby - Knotted Mass II
Knotted Mass II is an artist’s book developed from Holly Slingsby’s 2016 performance of the same name at Finishing Touch, a pop-up project organised by the brilliant The Bower.
These works were borne from Holly's research into the language of hair in the narratives of pop-cultural and mythical figures, and this beautiful book includes texts and images from the performance, new drawings, photographic documentation, and a specially commissioned text by Beth Bramich.
As part of Margate Now, Holly exhibited Approaching Viriditas (Epilogue), a new performance-to-camera video work, using iconography and action to think about fertility, infertility and assisted reproductive technologies.
