Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to announce that artist Sibyl Montague has been awarded a residency in Paris as part of the residency programme of l'Institut Français and the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
More than 60 artists from all over the world will be welcomed to the Cité Internationale Des Arts in Paris in 2017 as part of the residency programme. The programme of residencies is intended for foreign creators - identified by l'Institut Français, the French Alliances, the cultural services of the French Embassies, or the French and foreign cultural structures - who wish to develop a project in Paris, for a period of three to six months.
Sibyl will work from a studio in Paris from October 2017 to January 2018.
Sibyl Montague’s multi-disciplinary practice combines found and time based media to foreground the primacy of material and its ability to ‘perform’. Working between sculpture, video and installation, her work focuses on the particular, base qualities of material and its currency and affect within larger networks or economies.
Sibyl Montague, currently based in Dublin, completed a MFA from Chelsea College of Art, London in 2012. Recent solo exhibitions include Beyond Violet, WAC Wexford (2016); Woman Flew Home, The Black Mariah, Cork (2014); Arm Around You, Oriel Davies, Wales (2012). Selected group exhibitions include: This is Public and Sexy, Studio 468, curated by RGKSKSRG Dublin (2016); What Does Nothing Do, CCA Glasgow (2014); Bringing the Art Home, Deptford X, London (2012). She was recent recipient of the Project Studio Award at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (2015/16). Montague is co-founder and curator of PLASTIK, a biennale of Artists’ Moving Image in Ireland in partnership with LUX (London), the Irish Film Institute and Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (2015, 2017).
