Artist and researcher Charlotte Cullen creates environments grounded in the land, working through sculpture, installation and text. Scavenged and ephemeral materials entwine with formal material enquiries in metal and clay. Site is enacted as geological space for excavation, symbiotic (un)learning, resistance and healing. Intergenerational trauma, sickness and the body are manifest as material, physical encounters.
A member of artist-led studio and project space serf, Leeds, Cullen is involved in serf off-site projects and serf school, serf’s peer to peer learning programme. Previously they were founder and curator of U N N A W A Y, Huddersfield. Their research considers a material repositioning of artist-led practice and ecologies. They completed their practice led PhD at the University of Huddersfield in 2018.
