Adeline de Monseignat (b. Monaco, 1987) 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. Using mainly natural materials such as marble, sand, fur and glass, 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. Her work has been shown worldwide in galleries and institutions such as Blain Southern, Leila Heller, Victoria Miro, Masa, Ronchini, Nahmad Projects, 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 art fairs including Zona Maco, London Global Art Fair, Art Brussels, Salon Acme, Art Moscow and Arte Fiera Bologna. Residencies include Casa Wabi, Villa Lena, Fibra, Hogchester Arts and the Land Art Road Trip. She is the recipient of the RBS Bursary Award 2013, The Catlin Art 2012 Visitor’s Prize and Arcadia Missa Gallery Prize 2011.
