Artist Statement

This new photo is based on Thorneycroft’s recent exhibition and installation called “Herd”, where 140 altered horses are placed on a 40 foot long winding platform. The constructed tableau is closely aligned with re-imaginings and re-tellings of contemporary fairytales. Thorneycroft is interested in establishing a friction between the natural beauty of the environment and the questionable actions being carried out by the protagonists.
