    Wooden joist with OSB on top, plaster ceiling below, and a coil of cable.

    Probably.
    Some types of artex coating contained small amounts of asbestos. Plaster normally doesn't.
    The only way to know for sure is to have a sample tested.

    From what little I can see, it looks like the edge of a ceiling tile, as used in a suspended ceiling.
