Vanila Netto

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Born in Salvador, Brazil in 1963, Vanila Netto has lived in Australia since 1987. Her practice includes photography, sculpture, drawing and video. Her work is influenced by Modernist design and architecture, nature, science fiction and technology. Through her practice Vanila explores the depth of the relationship between pleasure and austerity in the context of today’s excessive consumption and waste production.
