Flavie Audi (French/Lebanese) (b.1986) 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, including Venus Over Manhattan New York, David Gill London, Stedelijk Museum Breda, Nilufar Milan, Tristan Hoare London, Galerie Tanit Munich, Karma International Zurich and Elisabetta Cipriani London.
Audi’s practice finds its point of departure within the manipulation of glass. Using the physical properties of glass, Flavie highlights the duality between the real and virtual worlds. In an era of technological innovation that has seen the creation of flawless, synthetic diamonds, undetectable by man or machine, Audi questions how we experience the real. Audi creates fragments emanating from a mass production landscape where gemmology aligns with geology in this synthetic new nature.
