Charlotte Cullen’s practice is a ghost story. Artist and organiser Charlotte Cullen makes things, broadly informed by the material, social, political, cultural and environmental position that steel and its production inhabit. This is questioned through the traces of touch which occur through material; its handling and production. This encompasses sculpture, installation, mark-making, print, text and finding forms of documenting gesture.
Cullen’s practice is shaped by the body and care, explored through the animacy of matter and how these material, physical concerns intersect with social class, migration and gendered identity. The landscape, and issues of land ownership, situates this encounter; muddied, uprooted, re-routed, and as site of familial and historical myth-making.
