Livia Rib (13/04/1994 Rome, IT) // Lighting Artist / Video Artist / Interactive Artist / Scenographer / Sound artist
Pity Madonna is a performance made by the recent performative collective SIL. Was presented during the event Does it have a name: Technology. Video on screen: Ivana wears dark sunglasses. Shopping receipts, bills, dropping from her ‘eyes’ like tears. (A long roll of bills stapled together.) In-front of the screen: ‘Real’ bills are rolled out from the screen (A long roll of bills stapled together.) Livia and Shay are reading out-loud the items that were purchased (from the bills).
“The capitalistic system, what an amazing religion! Cry your bills pity Madonna, we're gonna pray our image in our screens!“
