Adeline de MonseignatHOME
Adeline de Monseignat (b.1987) is a Dutch-Monegasque artist who lives and works in London. Her sculptural, installation-based and paper work comes from her interest in the Uncanny, the contact and the origin.

Ronchini Gallery is pleased to present Home, an exhibition featuring new works by London-based Dutch-Monegasque artist Adeline de Monseignat. The exhibition, curated by Samia Calbayrac, explores the nostalgia of childhood memories through a large-scale installation that incorporates architecture, sculpture and drawing.
Created partly from red and white striped fabrics from the awnings of the artist’s family home, the installation is composed of a structure occupying the central space of the gallery. The work makes personal connections by replicating the exact dimensions of de Monseignat’s childhood bedroom and becomes an immersive space which visitors are able to enter.
The reconstructed room responds to the playfulness of a child’s bedroom where imagination and creativity are untamed. A series of black and white ink drawings on display connect to de Monseignat’s installation; used to work out sculptural ideas, the drawings act as studies.
