Adeline de Monseignat

Adeline de Monseignat (b.1987) is a sculptor who lives and works between London and Mexico City. Her work translates an interest in psychology, mythology, anthropology and other literary sources which refer to birth, fertility, anthropomorphism and the uncanny. Through the process of sculpting, the artist aims to provide physicality to such intangible concepts. Adeline works primarily with organic, mineral, sensual, strong yet vulnerable materials such as fur, glass, textiles, steel and marble that aim to echo the human body’s qualities, vulnerabilities and potentialities.
