BasementArtsProject

28 Back Burton Terrace, Beeston, Leeds, LS11 5JH

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 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 works take on the manner of a blueprint and depict the torturous dimensions of these spaces, chilling in their cruelty.
