Lea Cetera (b. 1983, Brooklyn, NY) works in video, sculpture and performance to produce temporal installations that examine the space between object and body, public and private, the virtual and real. Utilizing techniques culled from theater and filmmaking, her work addresses constructed identities, the mediation of technology, the alienation of the human body, and the aura of the object/fetish.
Cetera has performed and shown work in the US and internationally at venues such as The Drawing Center, Art in General, Sculpture Center, The Jewish Museum, Queens Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, Disjecta Contemporary Art Center, Southard Reid (London, UK), Pilar Corrias (London, UK), MOSTYN Contemporary Art Gallery (Wales, UK), Simone Subal, High Desert Test Sites, Poetry Project at St. Marks Church on the Bowery, Anthology Film Archives and more. She holds an MFA from Columbia University, 2012 and a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art, 2005. She is represented by Southard Reid, London, UK. She lives and works in New York City.
