Diagonals and Some More Tangents was created during a two month residency in La Plata, Argentina. Jules Verne’s design for this city envisioned a utopian society of the future. In reality, the diagonals create confusing mazes that challenge previous experience of the urban environment. Costa’s collages, assemblages and installations were created from the city’s waste and the process of searching for it.

The exhibition runs until February 16th.
