Site’s next exhibition Platform 20 will open at Site Gallery, Yorkshire Artspace and Bloc Projects on 27 July 2021, and run until 22 August.

Platform 20 features the work of five Sheffield based artists: James Clarkson, Maud Haya-Baviera, Victoria Lucas, Conor Rogers and Joanna Whittle.

The multi-venue exhibition presents a fascinating insight into the artists’ work developed during their two-year residency with Sheffield’s visual arts organisations.

Platform 20: Manor Boy (Yorkshire Artspace)

Manor Boy is a solo exhibition by Conor Rogers inspired by his childhood on the Manor Estate in Sheffield. Through painting, spoken word poetry, sound installation and sculpture, Rogers engages with and interrogates the demonisation of the estate and its residents in both local imagination and
national press.

Platform 20: Heavy Water (Site Gallery)

Heavy Water is a homecoming – a collective return from relative isolation to the land. The group exhibition explores humanity, transience and the lure of the natural world; from rituals of mourning to the secrets of matriarchal moss colonies and the historic migration of humans across lands in the
search of peace, of freedom. Presenting work in progress developed during their time on the Freelands Artists’ Programme, Maud Haya-Baviera, Victoria Lucas and Joanna Whittle’s interdisciplinary exhibition weaves historical narratives with fiction and mysticism.

Platform 20: K-House (Bloc Projects)

K-House, a solo exhibition by James Clarkson, will explore the architecture of the office space as the physical interface between our work, selves and these complex chains of information. The work will manifest itself as a series of desktop, wall-mounted and floor-based sculptures, turning the gallery at the Bloc Projects into an abstracted office environment.
