TOMMORROW TODAY Innovation and Change in 1960's Canberra

"In the 1960's Canberra underwent a metamorphosis, from large country town to thriving national capital. Cutting edge innovations in education, science and technology, town planning and architecture were supported by national and international migration to the city. Canberra's cultural life also continued to grow in this period with the development of new theatres and cinemas, venues for art exhibitions and art education as well as sophisticated restaurants and cafes."

In Light of Shadows Opening – 1st June 2012

We endeavour collaboration in art, to seek the wonder of shadows.  Our work is to convey wonder.


 “For me, after forty years, the light, the challenge of the emptiness and the relationship with the fragility of this ancient land are still reasons for my profound attraction to this country.”

The Sydney Morning Herald, 12 June 2012

ACTIVATE: BRICKWORKS ARTISANS AND DESIGNERS

Enrico Taglietti  is a respected Canberra architect who has made a lasting and important contribution to Canberra’s built environment.
Enrico first began designing furniture in Italy in the 1950’s. Sculptural forms and strong geometries can be seen in his work.
In 2012, Enrico and Thor were celebrating the completion of a Taglietti designed letterbox over a whisky, and Thor took note of an unusual chair “Poliedrica”, which Enrico had originally produced and exhibited in New York in the 1950’s. Thor suggested a small change to the chair and ended up taking it back to his workshop. Enrico took the opportunity to commission Thor’s Hammer to build a series of prototypes and a new Polyedrica was born.



A collaborative exhibition of furniture designed and produced at the old Canberra Brickworks, this show features works by Enrico Taglietti, Geoff Farquhar-Still and Thor Diesendorf. Taglietti is a respected local architect, Farquhar-Still is an established, Canberra-based sculptor and Diesendorf is a leading furniture designer whose work focuses on design solutions to best make use of the natural qualities of reclaimed timber.


Enrico and Thor will be presenting the first release of the new 2014 Polyedrica Chair, a table and picture frame.



2015 - 2016 Comunita Italia - XXI Triennale  Milan

....dovremo considerare Enrico Taglietti come uno dei più  interessanti intrepreti della modernità italiana anche se la sua attività, dal 1954, si è sviluppata in Australia. Opere come la McKeown House o L’Australian War Memorial o il Town House Motel, con i loro rimandi a Wright a Neutra a Moretti hanno saputo interpretare paessaggi, mediando culture ed esperienze lontane .........

..... we may have to consider Enrico taglietti one of the most interesting voices of Italian Modernism even if his career was rooted in Australia from 1954. Works like the McKeown House or the Australian War Memorial of the Town House Motel with their links to Wright, Neutra and Moretti were able to interpret landscapes mediating distant cultures and experiences
