The project consists of participative performances pieces, videos, installations and photos: each project is themed around the problems facing refugees and immigrants and deals with issues connected to acceptance, integration and respect.
This Project explores, through a non-action at the Opening of 56 Venice Biennale and at Bologna Art Fair 2015, the nature of language, the concepts of truth and lies, and the subtle line between art and life.
This performance focuses on the ability to be silent for a long enough period of time. Executing multiple times in a loop the famous piece by John Cage 4’33”, the piece is developed in a performative and collective way.
This project is about spirituality, respect, tolerance, doubt, differences and human beings. It addresses the danger of fanaticism, as well as social and anthropological issues.
The Slowly Project is a work-in-progress, taking place in various cities around the world. The performance consists of moving in ‘slow motion’ in daily life, walking so slowly that the performer becomes a shock to those in the city. The project and the videos are works about society and our lives but also a reminder to take our time, in life and in art, beyond formalities, stereotypes, and social ways.
The concept of the work is a ‘light’ critique of the hypocritical ways that make people act without ‘seeing' and live without seeing, even if they think they do. Art exhibitions are visited but often they are not 'seen'. Most people go there not to see but to be seen...
This project has been prepared as a site-specific and interactive intervention for the PAC Museum in Milan, as an intersection between places and people.
Liuba went to Artefiera’s opening dressed with red dots. Then she took them off from her dress and put them all over the art works exhibited at the fair, creating a variety of reactions from the audience including astonishment, confusion, humour, and shock.
