THIS IS THE BEST ARTWORK is a photographic/narrative book by artist LIUBA, published by Campanotto editore in 2023 in bilingual edition Italian/English
This is the Best Artwork is about the universal theme of the birth of a child and the miracle of life. A son who arrived as a gift when the artist was at a mature age with a career spanning over almost 30 years.
The book collects images from the performance piece created by LIUBA at the opening of the Venice Biennale in 2019, alternated with passages of the artist’s diary. The passages retrace with intimate, confidential and delicate tones, moments from the artist’s pregnancy to the birth of her son Sole. Behind-the-scenes stories together with exclusive videos of the project complete this book.
