This solo exhibition from Laila Marie Costa, curated by Anna Gray, is a continuum of the concepts and materials that are Costa’s current concerns.
Consumer waste, collected and found objects create a mini installation that is intuitive and loosely constructed.
This body of work comments on memory, feminism, the artist’s Italian heritage, domesticity, and fashion; all with an overtone of irony and some innuendo.
Plastic and its mystique are showcased.
These colourful and playful materials embody environmental disasters that we are encouraged not to think about.
Fast fashion and fast lifestyle choices are examined through the lens of adornment and art.
I consume, therefore I am.
