Quarantine Trilogy (web version), 2020, video: 10 ′ 39 “, color, sound, and 3 + 2ap; performance: artist’s home, broadcasted on www.corpisulpalco.com, on May 1st and 2nd, 2020
QUARANTINE TRILOGY is a performance and video work prepared for the virtual performances marathon “Corpi sul Palco Performance from home in quarantine time” curated by Andrea Contin, streamed live during the Covid lockdown of 2020.
The video is composed by intimate personal home scenes edited with a new performance art piece inspired by VIRUS TABLEAUX VIVANT- red dots – symbol of ‘sold’ in the art fairs –become an immediate recall to the disease that has shaken the whole world.
LIUBA’s videos come from a long creative process that involves project idea and concept, performance production, interactions of people, places identities, collaboration with specific selected cameramen, editing and direction, which are made by the artist herself. The resulting videos mix together all those elements and it a complementary work of the performance itself.
“I consider my videos like paintings, books and sculptures. I carve them, beginning with hours and hours of shootings as they were a huge marble stock, cutting and selecting piece after piece in order to obtain the final shape.
I paint every single second of the video, deciding colors and combining sequences, in order to arrive to the final pattern. I write chapters and scenes as a story, giving a sense to each step following the other. I mix the music with the intent to give voice to the whole levels of lecture implicit in the work. I often collaborate with musicians asking tracks to work with.
I use only original shootings taken during my performances. No studio shootings or actor interactions are used to edit my videos. What is shown is part of what ‘really’ happened and it’s chance one of the main hero of the work.”
