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.

Sibyl Montague's (Dublin, Ireland) practice includes sculpture, assemblage, video and installation.
