Sibyl Montague

Super Critical Liquid2017

Sibyl Montague’s practice explores how we regard, hold, and consume objects and experiences within a politics of care. Her work explores trans-disciplinary forms of usability or handheld, making assemblage based works that combine vegetable, textile, digital and poor material sources, with the hacking of commodity goods and media.

Presented as ‘tools’ or series of assembled objects of use, her work focuses on disruptive, intimate and generative processes of making that aim to remediate and reroot mass material to its base as extractive, sentient and ecological. The outcome of this is ongoing, evolving physically from the handheld into larger hybrid forms, bundles, blankets, bags or swaddles that can be potentially worn or held with two arms.

About the Artist

Sibyl Montague

Sibyl Montague's (Dublin, Ireland) practice includes sculpture, video and installation. A graduate of Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, Montague was artist in residence at Visual Contemporary, Carlow (2020) and recipient of the IMMA 1000 residency award at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2019). Recent solo presentations include SELF SOOTHERS, Visual Contemporary, Carlow (2020); Practice curated by Alice Butler, New Spaces, Derry (2018); Saplings, Pallas Projects, Dublin (2018); My Fears of Tomorrow are Melting Away, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris (2018). Montague is co-founder of PLASTIK Festival of Artists’ Moving Image. Montague's practice explores concerns of form, usability, and the handheld, making work that considers how we regard, hold, and consume objects and experiences. Her work uses a wide range of sources that combine vegetable, used or ‘poor’ material, with the hacking and (dis)assemblage of commodity goods. Presented as 'tools' or series of sculptural objects of use, her work foregrounds the handheld and handmade as generative, dissident terms from which to approach material, making work that seeks to understand our relationship to objects as physical, but flawed representations of inner experience.
