A mixed-media sculptor and textile artist, Alice Channer creates works that explore the fluid nature of the body and its relationship to its surroundings. Working with a diverse array of materials, from metal and concrete to textiles and resin, Channer utilizes her media in unexpected ways, creating an interplay between her materials that surprises and even disorients the viewer. The figure of the body plays heavily in her installations, which often feature fabric printed to evoke hair or skin, curving steel rods that evince the human spine, and draped sculptural installations made of women's clothing.
Channer's work has been exhibited at notable institutions including the Whitechapel Gallery in London and the Tate Britain. Her work is also included in the 2013 Venice Biennale exhibition, "The Encyclopedic Palace," curated by Massimiliano Gioni.
