We’re happy to announce that LIUBA. Performance Objects, the latest book by LIUBA, has been just published by Quinlan in an edition of 200 copies numbered and signed.
You can have a preview of LIUBA. Performance Objects in occasion of its launch, that will be held in MILAN on the 18th of NOVEMBER, at 5 pm at “TheArtChapter” a fair/exhibition dedicated to artist books in the frame of the big event BOOKCITY MILANO.
LIUBA and the curator Luca Panaro will present to discuss the book.
The volume – here all the details – gathers about twenty portraits of objects used by the artist LIUBA in her performances. Far from being trivial pieces of everyday life, the photographs show us these objects in their concreteness, through their formal and chromatic details. While looking at them, their use and function shift in the background, compared to the memories that they evoke and contain. They are curious, sometimes unusual, objects that are linked to each other in an apparently arbitrary manner, displayed in a succession that tickles the curiosity of the reader until the last pages of the book, where their placement within the individual performances of LIUBA is revealed.
An introduction by LIUBA and a critical text by the curator Luca Panaro – both in Italian and in English – are part of the book.
