Alice Taylor is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer based in London. Her work currently focuses on sculpture, word, film and body, considering the ecological and emotional landscapes involved in making and moving.
Before joining the RCA, Alice has worked in bespoke tailoring and costume for companies such as Alexander McQueen and Huntsman & Sons. Alongside her work, Alice founded a clothing brand collaborating with rural artisans in India, addressing social and environmental circularity, craftsmanship and transparency. The experiences and learnings shared were invaluable, leading Alice to question the current fashion industry, the future of it and the systems within it.
Developing a new practice, Alice uses endurance, exploration and physical materialisation to ask questions around what it means to make in different environments, in alternative physical states, as a woman and as a maker. Her approach is inspired by the connections found between material, maker and landscape in rural locations.
Capturing the form of endured physical moments, Alice takes an instinctive and circular path to unite material, environment, body and mind.
