A limited edition print produced on the occasion of Tanoa Sasraku’s solo exhibition Terratypes at Spike Island (28 May to 17 July 2022).
Sasraku’s exhibition builds upon her ongoing research into hostile wildlands, and personal relationship to the energy, mythology and memories stored within the British landscape. Her edition, Knots, is part of a fragmented representation of a horse that references a horrifying incident she had on Dartmoor as a teenager. The other fragmented elements are present in her exhibition in the work Mire Horse (2022).
