LUCA LETTIERI

Luca studied traditional furniture making through the Sturt Craft Centre, Mittagong, NSW (2017). He completed JamFactory’s Furniture Associate Program, SA (2019) and received a fellowship from the Italian Australian federation to investigate southern Italian folk art traditions and European craft traditions (specifically violin making, mosaic, bronze casting, glass blowing mould making) in 2018 in Italy, Denmark, Germany and France. Then in 2019, Luca undertook a residency at Domaine de Boisbuchet in Lessac, France that was awarded as a scholarship through the JamFactory’s Medici collective. Most recently, Luca received a Project Development Grant that was funded by Arts South Australia. This was for the development of work for his first solo show with Saint Cloche. Luca has also been invited to participate in an exhibition called ‘SELECT’ curated by the NGV department of Contemporary Design and Architecture, this show will be a part of the inaugural Melbourne Design Fair in March of 2022.

“Dead Weight’ is a body of work exploring co-dependency and connection through a series of abstract sculptural assemblages and paintings. Spanning an eclectic array of mediums including steel, stone and ceramics, I draw inspiration from southern Italian folk art and the inherent tension between natural and manufactured materials"
