Alice Channer is an artist working with sculpture. Her forms and materials are found in the social and sensual 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 people, machines, and materials to bring multiple bodies and voices into her polyphonic works.

Alice Channer lives and works in the edges of London.

In 2023 a double survey exhibition featuring new commissions and an overview of sculpture and drawing from the last decade titled Heavy Metals / Silk Cut opened across Kunstmuseum and Kunsthalle Appenzell, CH.
