Livia Daza-Paris

Wakefield, QC

Livia Daza-Paris, is a Venezuelan-Canadian transdisciplinary artist working with performance, video, participatory art, text and documentary evidence. She uses attunement processes and decolonizing methodologies to suggest poetic testimonies within her art-led research about her father’s political disappearance during Cold War-era Venezuela. From studies with Joan Skinner, Daza-Paris became a certified teacher in the Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT). In her art-led research, ‘attunement as method’ is greatly informed by SRTs immersion in poetic imagery and principles of interconnectedness. Daza-Paris is a PhD candidate at the University of Plymouth, UK. She has graduate degrees from Concordia University, in Community Economic Development, and in Digital Technologies in Design Arts. She holds an MFA from Transart Institute accredited by the University of Plymouth. Her works and writings are presented and published (selected) in Performance Research Journal, VIS NORDIC Journal, THEOREM Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge, UK; Project Anywhere with Parsons Institute, NYC; Alchemy Film & Arts Festival, Scotland; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Caracas; and Optica Gallery, Montreal.
