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


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



I began working with performance art in 1992, as a way of combining different mediums of my creativity, such as painting, poetry and fairy tales which I was practicing before.

Performance art became my best loved way to express my concepts, and mixed media performances my identity.


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


In 1999, my artistic research took a definitive turn: I decided that I was most interested in performing outside of the walls of art galleries and institutions. Bringing art into the realm of public life, I moved my practice to the streets where the opportunity of interacting with various types people became a part of the work. Consequently, I began my 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 my thirty years of artistic practice I have performed everywhere, trying to investigate human contradictions, social problems, everyday life situations, and art world mechanisms.


In the last years I am very concentrated on participatory, collective, site-specific projects,  with the involvement of the public. I devoted most of my time investigating issues that are crucial for our society, as in my ongoing projects, which have explored spirituality and religions, silence and slowness, and the issues about refugees as my favourites themes, which are explored with a social and anthropological approach.


I enjoy writing and I have published in the 90′ three fairy tale books for adults and children using my own illustrations. I continue on occasion to write for various publications about Art and I run two blogs; the one as an artist diary in this website, and the other as a specific project’s blog: (


I am specialized in semiotics of art, image theory and visual grammar. I  run creative workshops focused on personal well-being through art and had extensive experience giving courses, workshops and teaching art to students of different ages.


I am 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, I love going back to Italy, especially to my beloved family native land, Romagna, and my city, Milan.


I became a mum late in life, and this is the most beautiful gift that life has given to me and for which I am grateful every day.



LIUBA is an italian artist working with performance art, videoart, site-specific and participative projects, photography and installations. She lives now in Milan and Rimini, her two own cities. She had been living in Bologna, New York and Berlin.


Her art work is concerned with social, anthropological, geographical, philosophical issues, human behavior, interactivity and chance. Her practice consists of site specific actions that burst provocatively into daily life, of videoworks that assemble the performance, the reactions of people and the identities of the involved places, and of photographies compositions, objects and installations derived from the performances. Her research is based on the analysis of contemporary society, investigating contradictions and problems of the social system and of the art system.


Her work has been presented in museums, festivals and galleries nationally and internationally, including Artissima Art Fair (Torino); PAC Pavilion (Milan), WeissPollack Galleries (NewYork), Galerie Parisud (Paris) Arte Fiera (Bologna), Scope (New York), Scope (London), Kreuzberg Pavillon (Berlin), Séquence (Quebec, Canada); Grace Exhibition Space (Brooklyn, New York); Image Movement (Berlin).



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.
