Alice Channer is a British sculptor based in London. Her work combines traditional and modern production processes to offer a synthetic replacement for both natural and industrial forms.

For Part 5 of ‘A Coin in Nine Hands’, the artist has made new work from pleated fabrics, rocks and the shells of crustaceans and bivalves, all of which she refers to as “carapaces”. Not an everyday word, a carapace is a tough skin or cover and implies some sort of protective coating or shield. She says that “Each work is an attempt to make visible the moment that these carapaces both touch and detouch industrial processes”.
