Lieta Marziali (Italy, 1973 / UK) is a jewellery artist and independent writer, researcher and mentor. Recently she has been exploring individual and collaborative curatorial projects. Her jewellery work has been exhibited internationally. Her writings, which span articles, reviews, interviews and catalogue essays, are regularly featured in international art publications both in print and online. She holds Bachelor’s Degrees in English Literature (Roehampton/University of Surrey, UK – 1997) and Three-Dimensional Design and Craft (Colchester School of Art, UK – 2015), and a research practice-based MA (School of Design, Art and Architecture/ex-Cass, UK – 2018). She continues to further her research and professional interests through the study of philosophy, art history and cultural studies, and anthropology.
Her research interests focus on ideas of the found and of provenance, and the intersection between search and research; reflection and reflective practice; the existentialist and phenomenological functions of art and its practice; the liminal aspects of art and its practice; the intersection between the personal, the social and the political; and theories of thinking as praxis.
