29 Nov Madeleine Stentiford
Madeleine Stentiford is an emerging Adelaide based artist, who’s work specialises in installation, sculpture, painting and fashion design. Madeleine Samples and remixes second hand clothing and miscellaneous objects found through the process of op shopping. These items to her are a source of rejected Australian imagery in the form of expended goods, which she believes act as a direct representation of our material culture.
She glorifies this eclectic range of bric-a-brac by borrowing imagery and splicing articles to represent the debased, low-fi larrikinism of contemporary Australian kitsch. Her work explores the philosophy of rural, coastal and suburban Australia, and her experiences of travel versus home life.
The use of shrines, chance, code and human error are recurring elements that filter through her work, used as a method of comprehending synchronicity and establishing networks.
