Gili Lavy works across sculptural installations and large-scale video projections. Lavy received her Master degree from the Royal College of Art, London. During 2017, Lavy was invited to exhibit her work at CICA Museum in South Korea, awarded a finalist for the Mario Merz Prize/2nd edition in Italy and was commissioned for a solo show at Palazzo Chiaramonte, Palermo during the Manifesta Biennial in Sicily. During 2016 Lavy was invited to show her work in the Whitechapel Gallery London, CAFA Art Museum Beijing, Art Basel Switzerland and awarded the Clore Duffield foundation Grant and Arts Council England Exceptional Talent Award.
Lavy’s work investigates the shifting borders between conventional faiths and her own constructed beliefs systems. Her work reflects upon the transitions within several beliefs, and their implication on existence. These transitioning realities, within lands, forgotten histories and theological views, are examined by Lavy’s own superimposed belief system.
Her work has been exhibited widely including Whitechapel Gallery London, Art Basel, Off Print Tate Modern, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Unit London, Lo Schermo Dell’arte Florence, International Biennale of Photography Brazil, CAFA Museum of Art in Beijing to name a few. She has been awarded and nominated for Awards including Arts Council England, Epos international Art, HIX Award London, Bloomberg New Contemporaries London, Visio acquisition prize Florence, Blooom Award by Warsteiner Germany, Spectrum Artists Moving Image, London to name a few.
