Avantika is an artist in Berlin who is taken with materials such as metals, glass, and found objects. Having moved around a lot throughout her life, she’s always felt more connected to things than places. Lately, she imagines systems within other worlds. By questioning the phenomenons of our own world, she extracts little moments of clarity and synchronicity and zooms in on them. She then experiments with the specific placement of objects to connote importance or ritual.  

Avantika was born in Washington DC and has lived in Seoul, Hanoi, Dubai, and Chicago before moving to Berlin. 

She recieved a BFA with a thesis in Visual & Critical Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
