‘Knot, Nepal’ was exhibited in Andrew Rogers’ 2019 solo show ‘frisson‘ at Dominik Mersch Gallery. This photographic work documents one colossal structure from ‘Rhythms of Life’, the largest contemporary land art undertaking in the world. It is part of a connected series of 51 massive stone sculptures, or geoglyphs, located in 16 countries across 7 continents. ‘Knot, Nepal’ was constructed by Rogers and the local community in Pokhara, Nepal, and covers over 60 square metres. The symbol of the Buddhist knot was chosen to transform what was once a cursed valley and local dumping ground into a space of meditation.
Rogers is well known for his monumental land art project Rhythms of Life, which has been extensively presented on The Google Cultural Institute. His abstract sculptures have also been both exhibited and permanently located around the world. Key locations include the Gateway to the United Nations in New York, the 57th Venice Biennale, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Australian National Airport in Canberra, and Astana in Kazakhstan as part of the Expo 2017 – Future Energy.
