BSix Alumni Liv Wynter, a Former Art Foundation student has been invited to perform at the Royal Academy of Arts
As an ex Foundation Art student, Liv is not only one of our greatest successes but Goldsmith University’s as well. Course tutor, Bryan Parsons commented saying: Liv (Olivia) Wynter was with us in our first year of Foundation, graduating from BSix in 2012. Liv was going through a difficult time in her life when she studied at BSix but she persevered through her Foundation, got accepted to Goldsmiths’ to study Fine Art and triumphed there also. She has managed to work through and transform her life experiences into powerful, performances that are at the same time healing and crafting an identity as a performer addressing, feminism, queer rights and human rights. She has very quickly established herself using spoken word, poetry, humour and wit in a very contemporary relevant way. Liv has forged an exciting future for herself through perseverance, tenacity and will, which added to her intelligence and talent have made her an inspiration to others.
Through her anarchic and punk exploration of language, rap and poetry, Liv uses her sharp wit and home truths teamed with honesty and realness to create discussions around those areas we so struggle to talk about, such as sexuality, gender, recovery from violent relationships and rebuilding yourself post trauma.
After an incredibly successful performance at her debut on Don’t Flop (which has now reached over 100,000 views on YouTube) in which she took down the intensely violent, sexist and homophobic battler she was up against, Liv has been pushing her desire to perform in places where she would not normally feel comfortable to freely go. This drive is what inspired her successful application to perform at The Royal Academy of Arts in Ai Weiwei’s solo show. Liv is driven by her desire to connect with and inspire other young working class people to feel like they can access art in all its forms.
