I create large scale site specific environments, visceral sculptures, and tactile, sensory experiences. Through these different mediums I want to realise that our body is a sensual system. The recurring patterns throughout my practice can be described as a proliferation, my work invites the viewer to ask themselves what kind of nature it is.
“The focus of Alice Heron’s work lies in elements of growth and how it relates to the body. Being immersed in the Netherlands where the land and the water are carefully controlled the artist finds herself looking at nature from a distance. She has the urge to create speculative scenarios based on imaginary flora and fauna and as a result she grows her own invasive species. Interested in merging threat and beauty together Alice Heron wants her work to feel like something is out of control, just as if it was having a life of its own: a kind of soft post apocalyptic poetry where the place the human body is at the centre of natural concerns”
