We have been working with the Department of Engineering at the University of the West of England to commission artist Alice Channer to create her first permanently sited sculpture for their new building.
Field Art Projects have been working with St William and Dallas-Pierce-Quintero to commission an artist to create a major new large-scale work in the heart of Battersea, London.
Public Art Statement for University of Bristol Temple Quarter Campus
Field Art Projects were appointed in spring 2012 to develop and deliver a public art strategy and programme for the University of Bristol’s residential site at Stoke Bishop, north Bristol. The project culminates with the launch of Sarah Staton’s new work Edith & Hans this week.
Field Art Projects are advising the Design Team for the new Bristol Arena on their art strategy and the art programme being delivered alongside the building.
Jes Fernie and Theresa Bergne, Field Art Projects, co-curated Future Perfect, a public art programme for the Hengrove Ward, a residential area in south Bristol, built primarily in the post-war era.
Please join us at Arnolfini on Wednesday 17 November for an artist talk with Alice Channer.
Alice Channer (b. 1977) is a London-based artist working with sculpture who has exhibited internationally for the past 15 years. Over long periods of time, she immerses herself in industrial and natural materials and production processes to find forms to develop 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.
In this talk, Channer will use words, images and objects to talk about her first public sculpture, Nanowires, commissioned for the new Engineering Building at The University of the West of England, curated and produced by Field Art Projects.
The artist will describe the processes of exchange, collaboration, endeavour and imagination that built the sculpture. The talk will discuss Nanowires in the context of her wider practice and the politics of materiality she has been articulating in recent work, especially her commission for Artangel, Lethality and Vulnerability; her work for Liverpool Biennial 2021, and her solo show Megaflora at Large Glass, London (all 2021).
