Adeline de Monseignat
Adeline de Monseignat is an artist who lives and works in London. Her sculptural, installation-based and ink works come from her interest in The Uncanny, the body, motherhood and the Origin. De Monseignat graduated in 2009 with a BA Language and Culture from UCL (London), and in 2011 with an MA Fine Art with Distinction from City & Guilds of London Art School. That year she also held a solo show ‘Reveal the Tension’ at the Norman Rea Gallery (York, UK), took part in Grand Rapid’s Art Prize (Michigan, US), and was awarded the Arcadia Missa Gallery Prize at London Group’s Open Exhibition. Early 2012, the artist was selected by Justin Hammond to feature in the renowned Catlin Guide and later included in the exhibition coinciding with the Catlin Art Prize 2012 , where her piece ‘Mother HEB/ Loleta’ was then awarded the Visitor Vote Prize. De Monseignat has been invited to show her work with galleries such as Galerie Im Regierungsviertel (Berlin, 2010), 20 Hoxton Square Projects (London, 2011), Sumarria Lunn and High House Gallery (London, 2012). In Summer 2012, she was an artist-in-residence at Great Brampton House’s Down Stairs Gallery (Herefordshire, UK). Her work was selected for The Threadneedle Prize at the Mall Galleries (London, 2012). Later that year, de Monseignat was invited as a guest speaker at Art Moscow to contribute to a talk organised and supported by Christie’s, Frameless Gallery and the British Council (Moscow, 2012), with a selection of her works on display. In 2013, she was inducted into the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
