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 (B. Cork, Ireland) varied practice combines textile, digital, vegetable, and ‘poor’ material sources with the hacking and disassembly of commodity goods and media. Working across mediums, including sculpture, video and installation, her practice has at its heart an expression of fite fuaite - the concept of interconnectedness, belonging and the association between personhood, craft and materiality. She recently exhibited at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Dublin; VISUAL, Carlow; New Spaces, Derry; Pallas Projects, Dublin, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris.
