Art Shows To Leave The House For This February

Ashleigh Kane, DAZED, 3 Feb 2022

South Yorkshire-born artist Corbin Shaw’s Nowt As Queer As Folk is described as both an exhibition and a social commentary on rural British life's “lost enchantment” by exploring ‘folk’ through iconography and embroidered tapestries and banners. Stitching together the enchanted, everyday, and political in his solo show, its centrepiece is a well – a site for replenishment but also associated with pagan ritual — elevated as a shrine. It pays homage to the different characters in Harthill, Shaw’s village of birth.
