Alice Channer | Megaflora
Large Glass, London
April 22 – June 26, 2021

Alice Channer‘s forms and materials are found in the social and sensual worlds of industrial and organic processes. She immerses herself in natural and industrial materials and production processes to find forms that she develops as sculpture. Her method is both experimental and precise, collaborating with people, machines, and materials to make sculpture that is emotionally charged and industrially perfected.

Megaflora is Alice Channer’s second exhibition at the gallery and it takes, as it’s starting point a bramble stem, also making an appearance in Rosanna Mclaughlin‘s short story ‘Ripple and Void‘, specially commissioned to partner the work (excerpt):

“She turned around, and noticed a giant bramble that was pushing through a gap in the pavement and making its way up the yellow-brick wall. It was hollow, she thought, just like me. Simone looked down at her hands, and noticed that her skin had started to ripple too. Her fingerprints were no longer a unique marker of identity, the signature of a oneness, but an endlessly revolving set of doors. She raised the index finger of her left hand and extended it towards a thorn. Rather than pricking her skin, it passed right through.
