Laila Marie Costa
Spirito Domesticus

In a world awash in imagery and the accumulation of the unused and unwanted, there are those among us revisiting, reworking and recycling for the purposes of a renewed imagining of life. After all, this is the way nature truly works.

Slicing and dicing their way through historical landscapes and cultural detritus, deftly decapitating and re- animating hybrid creatures, the blade-wielding dexterity of Ann Brennan, Anna Davern, Beci Orpin, Brooke Wolsley, Lucy James, Sheridan Jones, Tai Snaith and Vexta cartwheels into town as Chicks With Knives!!! A world of fractured form and ruptured realities is spun into shape in frozen moments, with colour and composition in temporary control of chaos.

Collecting the recyclable, Laila Costa takes the discarded waste of a consumerist society and repurposes it as art and design. Inspired by overlooked patterns, materials and forms in Spirito Domesticus, Laila carefully and considerately manipulates our given cultural reality into contemplative outcomes.
