Alice’s art is one of excavation, using the journey of the human species as inspiration for works including installation, ceramics, film and photography. Clough’s work often has a ritualistic element, using placement and repetition to create museum-like inventories, or materialising honest and tender personal rites. She is particularly interested in the crossovers between contemporary art and archaeological practice, for example through the aesthetics of 'the deposit'. Previously she has specialised in the anthropology of landscape, and the anthropology of art.
