Adeline de Monseignat Dutch, b. 1987

Adeline de Monseignat is a sculptor who lives and works between London and Mexico City.  Her work focuses on the life within inanimate entities, through the study of mythology, symbolism, anthropomorphism and the uncanny. Recurrent motifs include the sphere, the seed, the wheel and the ladder that act as universal symbols for the cycles of birth, life and death. By contrasting natural materials such as marble, fur , sand and soil with manufactured ones such as glass, steel and digital media, she creates a dialogue between the natural and the man-made.
Adeline holds a BA in Language and Culture, UCL (2009), a Foundation Diploma, Slade School of Fine Art (2010) and an MA in Fine Arts, City and Guilds of London Art School (2011). Her work has been shown worldwide in galleries and institutions such as Masa Galeria, Ronchini Gallery, Nahmad Projects, Blain Southern, Leila Heller, Victoria Miro, Cob Gallery, Totah, Kandlhofer, Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer, Saatchi Gallery, Freud Museum, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Royal Society of Sculptors, Museo Federico Silva, Museo de Geologia, Exeter Phoenix, and in art fairs including Zona Maco, London Global Art Fair, Art Brussels, Salon Acme, Art Moscow and Arte Fiera Bologna. Residencies include Casa Wabi, Mexico, Villa Lena, Italy, Fibra, Colombia, Hogchester Arts, UK and the Land Art Road Trip, USA.  She is the recipient of the RBS Bursary Award 2013, The Catlin Art 2012 Visitor’s Prize and Arcadia Missa Gallery Prize 2011.
