Adelaide Theriault

Adelaide is a transdisciplinary artist currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Their work revolves around biomimicry and the cyclical inter-functioning of living systems. Adelaide works with found and naturally abundant material to explore their own relationship to other-than-human beings, with a particular interest in addressing and rejecting learned objectification in exchange for a perspective that honors the dynamic complexities of the life cycles of all things, with no determined beginning or end. They are interested in interconnectivity and live circuits, and in mapping out fluid paths between worlds. Through a playful push and pull between archival documentation and reimagination, Adelaide explores new eco-niches that evolve from the overgrown spaces of anthropocentric infrastructure; that offer glimpses into possible futures beyond the expected lifetimes of today’s machines. Adelaide is currently pursuing an MFA at the University of New Mexico.
