Knotted Mass II is an artist’s book developed from Slingsby’s 2016 performance of the same name at 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 IIincludes texts and images from the performance, new drawings, photographic documentation and a specially commissioned text by Beth Bramich. Holly Slingsby’s practice centres on performance and uses props, costumes and video. She reinvents depictions of holy figures to explore their impact on contemporary culture and politics, using the ancient as a mirror to view the present with. Her pieces often take the form of staged miracles, rites or ceremonies.”
