AboutSibyl Montague works predominantly with moving image. Using video and installation she exposes the unfolding relationship between materials and processes.
Montague employs everyday materials - card, plastics, wood, paint, steel - to construct site specific environments in which she documents objects and experiments. These are then set in motion with the intent of initiating some kind of happening. Her methods honour a long tradition of artists who work between sculpture and video, and who investigate time and matter through the moving image. Having worked extensively with handmade techniques of stop-frame animation, she now uses video as a means by which she tracks objects moving in space.
