Lucrezia Costa (b.1996) is an Italian visual artist living and working between Milan and Casalpusterlengo. She attended LABA in Brescia and obtained her bachelor's degree in photography with a dissertation outlined with the help of mentor Giovanni Gastel. Costa then moved on to her master's in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies at NABA, Milan, where Lucrezia deepened her knowledge and cultivated her interest in the visual arts.

Through her work, the artist tries to slip inside the cracks of the unknown and bring to the surface lost fragments of the subconscious lost in the abyss of the human mind. The artists then link her interests in the concepts of temporality and spatiality to the process of physiological decay and its consequential pain, a sentiment shared by all living things on this planet.

The ecological implications of her research brought her to deepen vernacular architectures and the greek concept of “oikos” as a root of the term “ecology”. Starting from this point she goes deeper on themes that are structural of every being and in particular she’s working on a feeling that is transversal to every human, and that is the grief. 

She collaborated with institutions such as MUDEC and BASE Milan and she exhibited at The Holy Art Gallery (London), SPARC* Contemporary and Artefici del nostro tempo - The milk of dreams 2022 (Venice), luogo_e (Bergamo), co_atto, Depositomele and Spazio Canonica (Milan). She is attending ViaFarini - Artists in Residence (September-December 2022).
