DAVID LIVER (1977)

Writer, performer, and conceptual artist, working in text, visual arts, films, theater, and radio.

David Liver is known for his dematerialized artworks, and for his obscure imagery where he employs satire, gonzo-style autobiography, and black humor. His irreverent persona is his primary tool to compine a shifted-down-comedian-like-mode of writing with the radicalism of his conceptual art (which he likes to describe as “con-art” referring to confidence tricksters and deceivers).

Indeed, considering narrative to be the root of his creative output, a major of Liver’s themes is the institution of “Believes”, and their particular system of faith. In his "confessional" columns and speeches, many of which include literary and historical references, Liver explores this aesthetic system of values in order to provoke a more intimate voice, and to manipulate the blindspots that have become the foundation of a collective narrative.

David Liver collaborative approach often leads him to initiate or take part in group projects. As a visual artist, in 1999 he started the Y LIVER duo with Rugiada Cadoni. Their separation in 2013 ended the project. From 2013, he often collaborates with curator Fabien Pinaroli, co-authoring some of Liver's written perfomances which they call pre-actement.

Since 2012, David Liver is a prominent member of the international artist run magazine and art group E IL TOPO with whom he created and edited several issues, as well as curated monographic exhibitions, and regularly performs.

Currently he lives and works in Europe.
