Event Details

VAS Social Hour: SFAI Café » 6:30–7:30 pm 

Trafficking in a subtly surreal sense of illusion, British artist Alice Channer makes hard materials, such as marble and steel, appear malleable and fluid, and brings a complex sculptural presence to flat images. Her works, which often take the form of photographs printed on long narrow bolts of fabric, cascade from ceilings in cavernous rooms or undulate on the floor. As they take on architecture, the pieces address various industrial processes, from the machining of metal to the manufacture of beauty products. Channer has mounted recent solo exhibitions at the Kunstverein Freiburg, Germany; Lisa Cooley, New York; and South London Gallery; and she recently realized a major installation for the 55th Venice Biennale, Il Palazzo Enciclopedico (The Encyclopedic Palace).
