Liverpool Biennial 2021 exhibiting artists Alice Channer and SHELL LIKE in conversation with Wing-Sie Chan, Head of Programmes at a-n. Taking an in depth look at their practices, we explored the works they are exhibiting as part of this year’s Biennial, The Stomach and the Port, curated by Manuela Moscoso. Channer presents a series of pleated sculptures and fabric prints at The Lewis’s Building, accompanied by a new audio work by SHELL LIKE, both of which manifest different kinds of porous and non-porous bodies, as well as geological, biological and industrial processes and materials. Following the discussion, attendees were invited to join a collective listening of FIRST BIRTH, introduced by SHELL LIKE.
This event was delivered in partnership with a-n The Artists Information Company, as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.
