About the artist:

Born 1977 Oxford, Alice Channer lives and works in the edges of London. Graduated from BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London (2006); and MA Sculpture from Royal College of Art, London (2008).

Channer’s forms and materials are found in the social and sensual, and worlds of industrial and organic processes. Over long periods of time, she immerses herself in industrial and natural materials and production processes to find forms within them that can be developed 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.

She has exhibited widely over the last 15 years, at international institutions.

Her works are held in public and private collections including Guggenheim Permanent Collection, New York; Arts Council Collection, London; Tate Permanent Collection, London; Aïshti Foundation, Beirut; Daskalopoulos Collection, Athens; The UBS Art Collection, Zürich; Government Art Collection, London; Nottingham City Art Gallery, Nottingham; and Southampton City Art Gallery.

Selected exhibitions and commissions include Megaflora, solo exhibition, Large Glass, London (2021); Liverpool Biennial 2021: The Stomach and The Port, group exhibition curated by Manuela Moscoso (2021); Afterness, group exhibition, commissioned by Artangel, Orford Ness (2021); Sculpture In The City, group exhibition, City Of London (2021-2022); Breaking the Mould, Sculpture by Women since 1945, group exhibition, Arts Council Collection, Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield and touring (2021); Nanowires, solo exhibition, permanent public sculpture, New Engineering Department Building, University of the West of England (2021); Look! Exposing Art and Fashion, group exhibition, Marta Herford, Marta (2021-2022); and High Desert Test Sites 2022, group exhibition, curated by Iwona Blazwick, Joshua Tree, California (2022).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
