Adeline de Monseignat is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Sculptors who lives and works between London and Mexico City. With an interest in psychology, mythology, urban legends and anthropology, her work encompasses sculpture (working mainly with organic material), installation, drawing and film.
In her contribution to Cure3, Seed Slices, Adeline de Monseignat adapts her usual exploration of the idea of presence and life in inanimate objects to fit the Perspex cube. Inspired by the symbolism of fertility surrounding seeds, the artist has created a sculpture displayed as a four-leaf clover which adds further connotations of hope and luck. The rounded edges of the tactile marble invite touch and interaction. De Monseignat describes the work “like four slices of a pie, their modularity offers various options of display, triggering the viewer's imagination and engages them in play”.
