'Inhale, Exhale'
Alice Channer

Alice Channer's first solo exhibition in Scotland saw this London-based artist create an installation especially for the Mackintosh Museum. Channer's works often take the form of concentrations of matter, particularly fabric, which she pleats, stretches and folds. Through installations, she explores the potential for her works to inhabit a physical space and to have the feeling of being inhabited, paralleling the way clothes are worn on the body. Her installation for the show aimed to 'clothe' Mackintosh's work, moving with it in some places, and away from it in others. As the museum is part of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's architectural masterwork, with the style and features of a museum, Channer wanted to use the immediate and intimate time of the worn garment in an attempt to make Mackintosh's work exist in the present. 

A new publication, Inhale, Exhale was commissioned as part of the exhibition

Supported by Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, Glasgow City Council, The Henry Moore Foundation, The approach and Raven Row.
