MASS X ECOLOGY OF SOULS
We are the artists dwelling on the edge of ancient woodland in Knottswood’s craggy gorge aligned with Robinwood Mill. Our inspiration during this challenging time of change for all, was to shift perspective, go underground be rhizomic and become more open and think, question, make and create a collection of new works connecting the power of the landscape with humanity.

As Studio Knottswood in Mass X: we create through and with past present and future relationships with our bodies our cultures, in a multi-dimensional landscape imbued with myths and
The exhibition aims to viscerally express that we are not owned and controlled by governing forces, we are free to belong in our natural environment. We are the people living, inhabiting our places and our spaces. We are all powerful souls; this is our ecology.
