LIUBA performance artist and video artist

Performance art, urban interactive public art and participatory projects, video, installations and mixed-media works

I am a performance artist, video artist  and site-specific interactive projects artist living at the moment in Milan and Rimini. I have been lived in New York and in Berlin as well, now I am back to Italy and I am a new mum! But I am and will be always a great traveler!

My work is concerned with social, anthropological, geographical, philosophical issues, human behavior, interactivity and chance.

My research is based on the analysis of contemporary society, investigating contradictions and social problems of daily life, with often an ironic approach.

My practice consists of site specific actions that burst provocatively into daily life and of videoworks that assemble the performance, the reactions of people and the identities of the involved places. I am interested also in creating participative projects where the public takes directly part to the performance.

I have been shown and have performed internationally, including at the Venice Biennial, The Armory Show New York, PAC Milan, Art Basel, Scope London, Artissima Tourin, Grace Exhibition Space, Brooklyn, The Native Museum, Mashteuiasth and Canada. My work has been reviewed by Artnet Magazine, Flash Art International Magazine, IkonoTV, Artribune and others.

I began painting, writing  and dancing since I was a little girl. I had been studying Semiotics of Art with Umberto Eco and Omar Calabrese at Bologna University; this semiotic background is very important for my art and my work. I  have been also influenced by my uncle Elio Pagliarani’s poetry, by his rare but crucial suggestions and his performing attitude.
