Tiresia Marittima, 2018, Italy, colours, 10’10”  ed 7 + 2ap



The video Tiresia Marittima comes from the participative performance realized by LIUBA in 2017 for her solo show at Galleria Marconi in Italy. The title explicitly refers to the famous blind Tiresias – the one who doesn’t see, but knows – and to the place where the participative performance took place, Cupra Marittima.


The public was invited to leave the gallery space and walk through the streets with their eyes covered by a pair of white stuccoed glasses – hand-painted by LIUBA from old glasses she collected through an open call.


The video is composed by more than 1000 photos taken during the performance and by fragments of the hand-written comments left by the participants themselves after the performance.
