BIO

 

LIUBA is an Italian multi-disciplinary performance artist who began painting, writing and dancing as a little girl, full of curiosity and creativity.

Later on she studied Semiotics of Art  with Umberto Eco and Omar Calabrese at Bologna University. Her background in semiotics is very important for her practice. LIUBA also drew much inspiration from a famous Italian poet, Elio Pagliarani, her uncle. His rare but crucial suggestions and his performing attitude were decisive for her art.

She began working with performance art in 1993, as a way of combining different mediums of her creativity, such as painting, literature i.e.poetry and fairy tales, the body and space. She also worked with music, often inviting live musicians to interact in her performances.

 

Eventually, performance art became her best loved way to express her concepts, and mixed media performances her identity.

During LIUBA’s early artistic career she made her living via performance workshops and street art theater, performing her fairy tales for adults and kids. During those years, she developed a performative practice which enabled her to be more confident in front of any kind of public and in any kind of street and space. She became comfortable addressing the viewer using the public space as her platform.

 

In 1999, her artistic research took a definitive turn: she decided that she was most interested in performing outside of the walls of art galleries and institutions. Bringing art into the realm of public life, she moved her practice to the streets where the opportunity of interacting with various types people became a part of the work. Consequently, she began her so called urban interactive performances which introduced video as an artwork, collecting together live performance, interactions with people as well as capturing the identities of the site-specific places.

 

In her twenty-three years of artistic practice she have performed everywhere, trying to investigate human contradictions, social problems, everyday life situations, and art world mechanisms.

In the last years she is very concentrated on participatory, collective, site-specific projects,  with the involvement of the public. She devoted most of her time investigating issues that are crucial for our society, as in her ongoing projects, which have explored religion and the issues facing refugees.  In her last projects she is focusing on spirituality, silence and slowness as her favourites themes, which are explored with a social and anthropological approach.

 

LIUBA enjoys writing and has published three fairy tale books for adults and children using her own illustrations. She continues on occasion to write for various publications about Art and runs two blogs; the one as an artist diary in this website, and the other as a specific project’s blog: (www.thefingerandthemoon.net)

 

LIUBA specializes in semiotics of art, image theory and visual grammar. She  runs creative workshops focused on personal well-being through art and had extensive experience giving courses, workshops and teaching art to students of different ages.

 

LIUBA is a great traveler and appreciates living in different parts of the world researching and developing site specific projects with a focus on the human experience. However, she loves going back to Italy, especially during summer to her beloved native land, Romagna.  She currently resides and works in Berlin, Milan and Rimini.

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I am a performance artist and video artist and I use different media in my work. My practice deals with sociology, anthropology, geography, philosophy, spiritual issues and human behaviour, interactivity and chance. My research is based on the analysis of the contemporary society I live in and of the art world I participate in. I explore the contradictions and social problems of daily life, while always trying to maintain a sincere and ironic approach.

 

In my practice, I am interested in open-structure performances brought into the everyday public life and in the interaction with people, space, time and the opportunity of chance and spontaneity. In the last years my attention is always more focused on participatory projects and I am often working on group performances, inviting people to participate actively in the work.

 

My work is composed of projects that involve several processes and in which are implemented diverse skills and media; 1) Concept, 2) Research, 3) Preparation of the performance (outfit and object research, urban research and location choice, selection of technical staff, psycho-physical training, 4) the performance itself, 5) editing and direction of the video, 6) selection and exhibition of photos, videostills, video and videoinstallation..

 

I love the connection between the live performance experience and the video post-production. They are the ‘two sides of the coin in my work. In my performances I don’t use prearranged sets nor actors. I prepare the project and myself in every detail, but when I launch into everyday life to perform it then it causes reactions and interactions that I don’t control and that become part of the work too. What you see in my videos truly happened. I am interested in art going into life. My main interest is life.
