Event description

Description

Drawing upon the singular atmosphere of the basement as a contemporary art project, Forgotten Spaces presents an exhibition of new works by Sheffield based artist Sharon Mossbeck looking at medieval prison cells, oubliettes, and dungeons of Medieval Europe.

Cross-stitch is a versatile medium rarely seen in the context of contemporary fine art and is here utilised by Mossbeck to depict the scale of these forgotten spaces. Working with Aida (cross-stitch fabric), an unforgiving material, and making the most of its similarities to graph paper, these work takes on the manner of a blueprint and depict the torturous dimensions of these spaces, chilling in their cruelty.
