// Alice Channer
Alice Channer (b. 1977, Oxford, UK) lives and works in London, UK. Channer imagines her work as a kind of ‘21st Century Process Art’. She uses sculpture to stretch out, slow down and speed up industrial and post-industrial production processes. Her work aims to make these processes more visible to herself and to others, and to attune us to the multiple embodiments and disembodiments involved. Using materials ranging from spider crab shells and stainless steel to pelletised and recycled plastic and pleated silk, her work traces the disappearance, mutation and possible evolution of multiple bodies in post-industrial environments.
She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally over the last two decades, including institutional exhibitions at: Tate Britain, London, UK; Towner Gallery, Eastbourne, UK (2019); Museum Morsbroich, Germany; Whitechapel Gallery, UK; Kettles Yard, Cambridge, UK; La Panacée MoCo, Montpellier, France (2018); Aspen Art Museum, Colorado, USA and Kunsthaus Hamburg, Germany (2017); Museum Kurhaus Kleve, Germany; Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester (2016); Aïshti Foundation, Beirut; Public Art Fund, New York; Aspen Art Museum, Colorado, USA (2015); Fridericianum, Kassel; Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, both Germany and Künstlerhaus Graz, Austria (2014); The Hepworth Wakefield, Yorkshire; the 55th Venice Biennale, Italy and Kunstverein Freiburg, Germany (2013) and South London Gallery; Tate Britain, both UK (2012).
Her work appears in numerous public collections such as the Guggenheim Museum, New York (USA), Tate, London, Government Art Collection and Arts Council England.
