Antonija Livingstone operates at the intersection of performance and plastic arts, often in situ.
Formerly as a dancer/choreographer working most extensively with Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods.
Self-taught, her outlook is most influenced by nomadism and her family of geologists living and working in itinerant gold mining camps in the Canadian north west.
kinship with the elements. affection for the makeshift. exploration.
Her body of work is 15 years of devotion to a series of co-authored feminist performance projects: works conceived, and performed together with choreographers and visual artists Heather Kravas, Stephen Thompson, Antonia Baehr, Jennifer Lacey, Ian Kaler, Simone Aughterlony, Dominique Petrin, Nadia Lauro, Mich Cota and guest collaborators from all walks of life. The works have been previously commissioned by and shown in diverse contexts internationally including Potager du Roi, Versailles, HAU Berlin, Impulstanz, Leopold Museum Vienna, Museum of Art Rio de Janeiro, Serralves Porto, Arscenic, CH, MOMA Warsaw, MAI, AGORA Montreal, American Realness NYC, Fierce Festival UK, and forthcoming with Jamila Johnson-Small for Barbican London. As an associate artist at Ménagerie de Verre, Paris and Darling Foundry, Montreal 2018, Livingstone elaborates her practice as curator, coach and teacher researching Vandalism/Queer Methods. Motivated by a need for re-enchantment and refuge Livingstone strives to activate inclusive assemblages of kin and things: paradoxical companionships trembling between genres.. sans papiers.
