The Chimney is pleased to participate in “Pabellón de las Escapers” (Pavilion of stairs), a site specific project organized by Guadalajara 90210 in an in-construction site in Mexico city that invited artists, architects and urban designers to reflect on the idea of the stairway and transform the building into a surrealist site. The Chimney will present the work of Adeline de Monseignat, Perla Krauze and Mariana Garibay Raeke

Adeline de Monseignat (b.1987) is a sculptor who lives and works between London and Mexico City.  Her work translates an interest in psychology, mythology, urban legends, anthropology and other literary sources which refer to birth, fertility, anthropomorphism and the uncanny.  Through the process of sculpting, the artist aims to provide physicality and functionality to such intangible concepts.  Adeline works primarily with organic, mineral, sensual, strong yet vulnerable materials such as fur, glass, textiles, steel and marble that aim to echo the human body’s qualities, vulnerabilities and potentialities. She completed her BA in Language and Culture at UCL (2009), Art Foundation at the Slade School of Fine Art (2010) and her MA in Fine Art at City & Guilds of London Art School (2011).  Selected Solo Shows include O' at Ronchini, London (2018), 'L'Attesa' at Exchiesetta, Polignano a Mare, Italy (2017), 'Home' at Ronchini, London (2014).  Selected Group Shows include 'Skulpturenpark' at Lisa Kandlhofer, Vienna (2018), 'Polarities' at Totah, New York (2018), ‘Synergia’ at Galeria de Arte Méxicano, Mexico City (2018), 'Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer' at William Benington (2017), 'Force of Nature' curated by James Putnam, Mile End Art Pavilion, London (2017), ‘House of Penelope’, Gallery 46, London (2017), 'UK/raine' at Saatchi Gallery, London (2015), ‘Whispers’ curatorial project at Ronchini, London (2015), '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, London (2013), amongst others.
