Domenico Laterza was born in Milan in 1988. He studied and graduated at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Brera and attended the two-year course with specialization in sculpture. He currently lives and works in Milan.

In 2014, after winning a scholarship, he moved to Frankfurt. During this period his works were featured in the exhibitions: Rundgangand Whitin an affine spaceat the Zollamt Studios, Offembach am Main in Germany. In 2016 he took part in the collective Domestic Flightslocated in the Vittorio Corsini studio in Milan and Non solo di domenicaat the Villa Contemporanea Gallery in Monza. Also in 2016, he won the Inside Art Special Prize and participated at the exhibition The Passengersat The Flat gallery in Milan.

In 2017 he won the second edition of the CC Aniene Prizeand in 2018 he took part in the group show Elementi Contrappostiat the Mucciaccia Contemporary in Rome, in 2019 he participated at Macro Asilo with the performance Mastica e sputa, in which literal texts are transformed into spatial images.

Domenico Laterza’s artistic language develops in the aesthetics of sculpture: through the graceful winding forms of the work Small dancer, emerge the harmony between segments of fluid matter joined by the stratification of advertising flyers thus revealing all their aesthetic potential.

Constanlty changing, Laterza’s sculptures belong the sphere of performance art, because with a metal core, the structure acts as a pivot allowing for the compositional freedom of the dance of flyers that change according to their movement.
