The MARKINGS exhibition gathers together and explores the different marks used by farmers to identify their sheep in the North West region. Works made with local wool are accompanied by a short video that explains the different markings, their meanings and symbolic use. Creating a dialogue with farmers and place the project opens on to a broader reflection concerning the signs and forms of identification humans use to identify animals, plants and territories.
