Liv Wynter is a queer, working-class artist living and working in South London. Through anarchic and punk techniques she attempts to explore politics and gender through the language of rap and poetry. In this context Liv creates platforms where she can approach sensitive discussions that society struggles to deal with such as pay, class, gender, sexuality and relationships.
Liv is able to deal with these complex topics by using essential tools to her practice such as wit, honesty and frankness whilst performing. Liv is driven by the desire to connect with young, working-class people in order to promote the accessibility of contemporary art in all its forms.
Her recent project HEADFUCK took place on a digital platform and was made up of series of one-on-one skype performances spanning 31 days, all starting at exactly 1am.
