Alan Kane:

Alan Kane (b. 1961, Nottingham, UK) lives and works in London, UK. Kane’s work often takes the form of sculptures incorporating found or readymade components. It plays with the entrenched systems and values of the art world, in particular the perceived hierarchies that govern different art forms, particularly the distinction between high art and everyday creativity. Select exhibitions and projects include Punk Shop, Ancient and Modern, London (2013); Orpahned Dishes, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2011); Vanitas Vanitatum Omnia Vanitas, London College of Fashion (2010); the Artangel, Jerwood Open commission for Channel 4 (2009); Disarrays Ancient & Modern, London, UK (2009); and The Stratford Hoard: Art on the Underground, Stratford Station, London (2008). Kane is represented by Ancient & Modern, London.
