Contemporary Jeweller

Laila Marie Costa is a Melbourne based visual artist, jeweller, zine publisher, curator and musician. 

Her working process is based on collecting the waste and refuse of consumer culture and allowing the materials to infer the form. The debris is sorted and arranged by various time tested and obsessive methodologies. She works across collage, assemblage, installation, jewellery and occasionally sound. Her creations are informed by her heritage, domesticity, feminism, environmental issues, art history, materiality and humour. The nebulous spaces between fine art, craft and design are the areas of that intrigue and inspire the bulk of her investigations.
