Il Palazzo Enciclopedico / The Encyclopedic Palace
curated by Massimiliano Gioni
55th Venice Biennale
June 1 - November 24, 2013
Lisa Cooley is pleased to announce Alice Channer's participation in the 55th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale. She will be included in the exhibition Il Palazzo Enciclopedico / The Encyclopedic Palace, curated by Massimiliano Gioni.
Alice Channer’s work traces the disappearance, mutation, and possible evolution of a body and of materials in post-industrial environments. Her works are made up of flat surfaces that she pleats, curves, stretches, expands and contracts to explore sculptural concerns of volume, dimension and weight. By treating the surfaces, materials and processes that make up our post-industrial environment in this way, she asks what it is to be embodied in relation to these flat places, be these technological, industrial, virtual or commercial.
Alice Channer lives and works in London. Solo exhibitions include Cold Blood (2012) at Lisa Cooley, New York; Out Of Body at South London Gallery (2012); Body Conscious (2011) and Worn-work (2009) at The Approach, London; Other-Directed (2011) at BolteLang in Zurich; and Inhale, Exhale (2010) at the Mackintosh Gallery, Glasgow School of Art, as part of the Glasgow International. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions, including at Whitechapel Gallery, London; Raven Row, London; Tate Britain, London; Stuart Shave Modern Art, London; Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York; Lisson, London; Hayward Gallery Touring, UK. Channer completed a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, and an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, both in London.
Channer's work is currently on view through June 2nd at The Hepworth Wakefield, United Kingdom in the solo exhibition, Invertebrates. She will present a solo show at the Kunstverein Freiburg, Germany in the fall of 2013.
