Artist Profiles

Layla Curtis

Born 1975 Chippenham, England.

Layla Curtis is a British artist whose practice explores the notion of borders and boundaries, both physical and metaphorical. The artist’s early cartographic work, which was developed during a residency at the Akiyoshidai International Arts Village in Japan, in which she painstakingly creates a collage of a fictional combination of cities, towns and roads within a familiar form, questions the very simple presumptions about what comes next and who belongs where. The close observation lends a strange, slow, understanding of a familiar and obvious series of conflicts and questions.
