Born in Monaco in 1987, Adeline is an artist specialised in sculptures and installations. Over the past seven years, Adeline has completed her Art Foundation at the Slade, her BA in Language & Culture at UCL, all the while exhibiting her work in Europe and the US (London, Monaco, York, Milan, Berlin, New York, Cincinnati).

My recent work attempts to subvert the familiar through the experience of ‘the uncanny’ (Freud, Das Unheimliche, 1919). With artists like Oppenheim and Bourgeois in mind, my interest lies in ‘making the familiar strange’. With the simple combination of glass and fur, my sculptures aim to provoke tensions between the threatening and the safe, the animate and the inanimate, while remaining on the threshold between the familiar and the unfamiliar. Fur is an unconventional material because of its suspended condition between life and death. In this way it simultaneously repulses and seduces. Pressed behind glass, it suggests a potential tactile experience one can only undergo
by ‘touching with the eyes’.
