This group exhibition at Site Gallery and S1 Artspace focuses on the dual concepts of “domestic ambience” and “domestic surrealism”, considering the ways that artists have depicted or reimagined living spaces, domestic labour/routines, or many different ideas of home. Intended as a productive feedback loop with the extraordinary circumstances that led many of us to be “stuck at home” for many months on end, Here In This Room looks to the ways that artists have seen domestic spaces differently. Whether viewers encounter these works—produced across different years, geographies and perspectives—within the contemplative space of our exhibitions, or through our online platform in their own domestic space, the aim is for these artists’ work to act as invitations to see and appreciate space in new, unintended and even fantastical ways. Curated by Sheffield DocFest Arts Programme Curator Herb Shellenberger, this exhibition features works across different forms including moving image, installation, mixed media, sound and performance.

In Posse, 2021, is a new installation by artist Charlotte Jarvis that documents a quest she took to make semen from “female” cells. The work engages with semen as a revered magical substance, a totem of literal and symbolic potency, and aims to use art and science to disrupt the patriarchy.
