Liv Fontaine is an artist based in Glasgow, UK. She works across performance, writing, video, illustration and photography. She is interested in private lives and pathological lies and particularly the space that exists between the performance and the personal.

Her current work examines stock characters and familiar narratives relating to ‘The Woman on the Edge’. She focuses on the idea of hysteria and wild desperation as the only adequate response to society. Under the performance pseudonym VIV INSANE she creates live shows that challenge notions of patriarchal privileges and sexual stereotyping and the subsequent violence of these - all the while examining her own complicity in this total orgy of depravity.

Liv Fontaine will be performing a short text she has written especially for the event reflecting on her role in Danse Macabre.
