Florentine Ruault (b.1996) is a sculptor and a graduate from Chelsea College of Art (2018). Her practice is inspired by the impact of globalisation on contemporary cultures and future societies. Florentine integrates installations and sculptures into architectural landscapes as triggers for interpersonal communication. Her aim is to elicit debates around how we respond to our modern environments by offering alternative interaction opportunities and disrupting perception of spaces. Florentine has exhibited nationally and internationally with institutions such as Tate Modern (2018), Raw Pop Up (2018) and Chalton Gallery (2016).
