Artist ID #12: Adeline de Monseignat

Adeline de Monseignat

Lives and works in London (b.1987)

“I investigate ways in which inanimate objects can trigger emotional responses and even hold a sense of presence and life. I thus attempt to inject ‘Life’ – from German Leib ‘body’ – into my creations by giving them a body, a soul and a story.” (Artist’s Statement)

“My work aka ‘creaptures’ – creature-sculptures – share a common triple-stranded DNA:

  • The Uncanny – the ghostly, the creepy, the unfamiliar – testing life
  • The Origin – roots, beginnings, etymologies – coming to life
  • The Contact – interaction, the senses – feeling alive

P.s. Creaptures need you in order to stay alive.”

(Artist’s statement)
