Adeline de Monseignat (b.1987) is a London-based sculptor. Her sculptures and installations are a testimony to her interests in birth, nature and bringing the inanimate to life. Inspired by Brancusi, Bourgeois and the Surrealists, for whom the egg was central to their works, themes tied to the body, the uncanny and the origin are recurrent in her practice.  These interests are dealt with in her works with organic, sensual, strong yet vulnerable materials such as fur, eggshells, fabric and marble that aim to echo the human body’s qualities and potentialities.

Adeline has a BA in Language and Culture, UCL (2009), and an MA in Fine Art, City & Guilds of London Art School (2011).  Selected exhibitions include: ‘Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer’ curated by William Benington (2017), ‘Force of Nature’ curated by James Putnam, Mile End Art Pavilion (2017), ‘L’Attesa’ solo project curated by Roberto Lacarbonara, Polignano a Mare, Italy (2017), ‘UK/raine’ at Saatchi Gallery (2015), ‘Whispers’ curatorial project at Ronchini (2015), ‘Home’ solo show at Ronchini (2014), ‘Time to Hit the Road’ at Leila Heller, New York (2014), ‘Articulate’ curated by Jeremy Lewison at Victoria Miro (2013), ‘The London Project’ curated by Gerson Zevi at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2013), ‘The Uncanny’ curated by James Putnam at Ronchini (2013), ‘Dead Inside’ curated by Max Wolf and Meghan Carleton at Bleecker St Arts Club, New York (2013), ‘The Future Can Wait’ curated by Zavier Ellis at Victoria House (2013), ‘Dividing Line’ curated by Sumarria Lunn at High House (2012), ‘The Threadneedle Prize’ at the Mall Galleries (2012).
