Micaela lattanzio potrait In her aesthetic and conceptual characteristics, Micaela Lattanzio outlines a unique linguistic voc

Micaela Lattanzio was born in Rome, where she currently lives and works. Through the medium of photography, the artist conducts a design research, reworking the image into a painterly element where two-dimensional matter finds its third dimension.
In her aesthetic and conceptual characteristics, Micaela Lattanzio outlines a unique linguistic vocabulary, deconstructing reality to explore a narrative dimension that goes beyond the surface, an investigation into the human being and the authenticity of their body, where form and concept merge into a work that no longer belongs to a unified center of social identification but is the principle of an infinite nuclear fission.

The artist's works are born from a meticulous ritual of cutting photographs and painting textures, which she herself creates and breaks down into fragments that are subsequently arranged following a new order. What she achieves is an intricate suspended mosaic through which she deconstructs the original image, creating new visions of the world, giving faces, bodies, and natural elements a visual logic that follows the creative patterns of nature.

The poetics of her work focus on the relationship and intrinsic bond between humans and nature. As happens in the relationship of Biophilia, humans are attracted to natural forms because they benefit from them at a psychophysical level, experiencing fascination. Those forms, even of an artificial nature, mimic the perfect patterns of nature. This is why her works contain references to fractal structures, natural mathematical patterns like the Fibonacci sequence, chemical compositions seen under the microscope, and mineral structures. With the help of photography, the artist transforms matter into what she herself defines as "molecular aggregates." Her work is based on the concept that all animate and inanimate matter is composed of cells and molecules, in this sense, there is no distinction between us and the whole, a reminder of how we are part of a complex system.

Site-specific interventions are an additional expressive dimension of the artist, where she amplifies the direct relationship with nature, as the location becomes not only a hosting subject but the very material of the artwork, where the installation merges with the landscape. 

Among her installation projects, the presence at Maam, Museo dell'Altro e dell'Altrove di Metropoliz stands out, as well as the Royal Caribbean collection, a public art intervention in the city of Poznan, Poland, and a work conceived for the cloister of San Domenico in Taranto.

Among the various exhibitions she has participated in, notable ones include: "Simboli di ferro" at Muspac in L'Aquila, "Donne di Colore" presented at the Torre dei Lambardi in Magione, "Confronti/Poredenja" at the Kinoteka Jugoslavenska in Belgrade, "Visioni di Gaia" at the Chiostro di San Francesco in Monsampolo, "When we dream We Are All Creators" at the Horti Sallustiani in Rome, "CHICAS*Chicas*chicas" at Galleria Elvira Moreno in Bogotá, "Corpus Imago" at Galleria Emmeotto, Palazzo Taverna, "Glocal Project" at Museo Marca in Catanzaro, and "Every Body Talks" at the Mattatoio in Rome. In 2014, she was the winner of the special Zingarelli jury prize titled "Silent Stories." The artist has exhibited her most recent works at

the Context Art Miami, Art Lima Peru, and Barcu Art Fair in Bogotá, Colombia. In October 2018, a work from the Fragmenta series was used as the cover of the book "Shame is an Ocean I Swim Across" by American singer- songwriter and poet Mary Lambert, published by MacMillan Publishers Ltd. In March 2019, Micaela Lattanzio exhibited a new body of work from the Fragmenta series in a solo show organized by the Ca' D'Oro Gallery in Chelsea, NY.
