Channer describes her work as “a kind of 21st Century Process Art. I want to use sculpture to s t r e t c h out, slow down and speed up industrial, post-industrial and ‘natural’ production processes. This is so that I can make these processes more visible to myself and to others, and to attune us to the multiple embodiments and disembodiments involved. Using materials ranging from spider crab shells and stainless steel to pelletized and recycled plastic and Corten steel, my work traces the disappearance, mutation and possible evolution of multiple bodies in post-industrial environments."
She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally over the last two decades, and been especially active this year including most recently her commission Lethality and Vulnerability for Artangel in Orford Ness, her one-person shows at Large Glass and at Quartz Studio, Turin, a two-person collaboration with Madeline Pledge at Case Study Project Space and participation in the Liverpool Biennial and the current iteration of Art in the City (all 2021).
