The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

The programme at S1 Artspace this spring was dedicated to its resident community of artists, with a studio-holders' takeover. The exhibitions in the gallery are postponed, but in the meantime, Charlotte Dawson is taking her exhibition online.

Charlotte Dawson is an artist based at S1 Artspace, using sculpture, installation and moving image pieces to explore the communicative nature of objects.

Under-Side, Under-Stood is a body of work investigating our connection to the ground below us, exploring our relation to this space through physical and written language. The exhibition website was updated daily over the course of its weeklong run (30th March to 6th April) and remains available to view online.​​

Enjoy the exhibition's virtual walk, exhibition walkthrough and spoken word piece below, and follow the links to its accompanying zines and risograph prints.

Virtual walk
An important part of Charlotte's practice is observational walking. This can be to collect physical objects to use in artworks or to source inspiration. In the exhibition's virtual walk you'll get the chance to take a short journey through her research, gaining access to the images that inspired the exhibition.
Follow the virtual walk.
