Flavie Audi


Flavie graduated from the Architectural Association in 2011 and completed an MA at the Royal College of Arts in 2014, where she specialized in glass. Her practice has expanded into various media and collaborative projects with fashion, jewellery and furniture designers. Her works has been widely exhibited in Europe and US (Venus Over Manhattan, Soneva Fushi, David Gill, Stedelijk Museum Breda, Galerie Tanit, Karma International, Elisabetta Cipriani…).

Audi’s practice finds its point of departure within the manipulation of glass. Glass plays a crucial part in contemplating a utopian future world where humans create cosmic fragments and new types of landscape formations where gemmology aligns with geology in this synthetic new nature. Through its omnipresence in nearly all contemporary forms of digital devices, glass becomes a signifier of the tension between the realms. She investigates the meeting point of natural and artificial worlds, the real and virtual. The works capture a fleeting, living energy and suggest a certain ambiguity, hovering between digital screen and celestial body. In a dematerialised world where all is virtual and generic, her work seeks to define a new type of aesthetic and physical materiality and invites the mind to expand in the cosmological infinite.
