A Liparoto


A. Liparoto (1987, USA) was educated in Visual Arts in London and completed a MFA at KASK Ghent and makes work that researches vulnerability, subjectivity and the borders of life and performance. Liparoto’s first film Andrew a Strong Courageous Warrior premiered at the IFFR 2016. This film is one piece in a series of works titled Andrew has his period which includes a commissioned performance at the SMAK Museum Ghent and a solo show The Possibility of Being Other Than at Het Bos, Antwerp in May 2016.

Liparoto pursued collaborative work with research artist Zed Morales, forming the Plural Authorship Collective. As P_A_C they took a cargo ship to the USA expanding their performance-based research, touring their work across the USA in spaces such as Current Space, Baltimore; Panoply Performance Laboratory, NYC and Good Children Gallery, New Orleans. Liparoto currently lives and works in Ghent (BE).

At Arc, Liparoto will undertake research for a new film titled Small acts of violence. Liparoto will be looking specifically at the patterns that female violence takes in Western society, and how they are defined and punished, thus weaving a polyphonic portrait of female violence.
