Katia Carletti, Pulling against tide and wind, installation view at FELTspace, 2013Comprising of both painted and sculpted works, 'Pulling against tide and wind' responds to a two-month residency undertaken in 2012 by Adelaide based artist Katia Carletti, in Reykjavik, Iceland. Using the unique environment of Iceland as a receptacle for homesickness and loneliness, this body of work hopes to reconcile the act of journeying with a longing for, and consequential return to, home.

Katia Carletti is an Adelaide based visual artist. Upon graduating from Adelaide Central School of Art with Honours in 2011, she has shown work in solo and group shows in Adelaide, as well as undertaking a two-month residency in Reykjavik, Iceland. Creating work predominantly in the mediums of painting and sculpture, Carletti's practice explores ideas about landscape, emotion and ritualised experience.
