Adeline de Monseignat Sculptures

Adeline de Monseignat  is a Dutch-Monegasque artist who lives and works in London. Her project-based sculptural work investigates ways in which inanimate objects can trigger emotional responses and even hold a sense of presence and life. Since completing her MA in 2011 she has shown with Victoria Miro, at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and at the Bleecker St Arts Club in New York, as well as winning the Visitor Prize of The Catlin Art Prize and being awarded a Royal British Society of Sculptor’s Bursary.

In my sculptures I am interested in finding harmony in the contrasting qualities of strength and fragility, with the aim of making the viewer reflect and smile, as my approach is one of an optimistic and playful artist. I like to incorporate qualities to my work inspired by Surrealism, the artistic movement that has inspired me the most. Surrealism has often proven to trick the viewer with visual illusions, which fascinates me. Through my art, I like to defy gravity. The main figurative subject of my pictures always seems to float within the canvas, without any help of a background to place the subject in either time or space. This also translates in my sculptures where gravity illusions are even more enhanced, as working three-dimensionally enables me to do so. These latter are often brought to life thanks to natural materials such as wood, metal and even eggshell. When it comes to inspiration, imperfections in nature are what trigger my curiosity - a drip, a drop, a crinkle, a wrinkle - an imperfection is the sole evidence of life. I am always on the hunt for the perfect defect; the thought or sight of something challenging - shades, lighting and reflections - will immediately arouse my craving for creating. Idioms, expressions, puns and play-on-words are also often the starting point of my work, such as the “˜chicken or the egg’ or “˜wild life’ Last but not least, I’m interested in building a dialogue between the art and the audience who I expect to respond instinctively through their impressions, feelings and senses. My aim is to make people live a unique experience through my art.”
