VISUAL are delighted to host Sibyl Montague as Artist in Residence this season. Montague’s practice foregrounds the primacy of material and its ability to perform. Working with a range of sources; vegetable and digital matter and engaging strategies of appropriation, or the (dis)assemblage and hacking of commodity goods, her work focuses on locating generative, dissident terms from which to approach material and democratise form.
