Alice Channer: Out of Body
2 Mar - 13 May 2012
For her South London Gallery exhibition, British artist Alice Channer has created an installation of entirely new sculptural works which extend her exploration of the relationship between the human body, personal adornment, materials and sculpture. In these figurative works, Channer questions established hierarchies within the history of art, objects and clothing, and offers a unique perspective on manufacturing, the hand-made and consumer culture.
Channer graduated from London's Goldsmiths College in 2006, and the Royal College of Art in 2008, and has since shown in numerous group shows as well as at The Approach, London.
The exhibition is accompanied by the publication of the artist’s first monograph.
The exhibition is supported by Vicky Hughes and John Smith, The Henry Moore Foundation and The Elephant Trust. With additional thanks to The Approach.
