Alice Channer

Alice Channer's forms and materials are found in the sensual and social worlds of industrial and natural processes. Over long periods of time, she immerses herself in organic and synthetic materials and production processes to find forms within them that she develops as sculpture. Her method is both experimental and precise, collaborating with machines, materials and people to bring multiple bodies and voices into her polyphonic works.

Alice Channer lives and works in the edges of London.
