‘Sailor knot’ is a stage play in eight acts by Polina Slutskina (born 1947). The play consists of eight dialogues between a sailor and Assol. Assol is a rare female name that appeared in the Soviet Union after the publication of the novel ‘Scarlet Sails’ by Aleksandr Grinberg in 1922. For each act Goppe created a page with a linocut, in a style close to those he made for the ‘Glue bottle’ (see cat. 138), to which he mounted vintage photographs.
