gloATL’s new migratory, public work Livers is a contemporary physical experience on a theme of endurance. The work reflects a species’ primitive traits and voluntary migration patterns in order to arrive to a vessel, a home, a tank.
The term “Livers” was coined by French theorist Guy Debord at the peak of the Situationists era in the 1960’s. Debord stated, “We are all Livers.”
Roaming performances start at the Peters Street Bridge at 8:30 and 10:30, beginning a migratory pattern that reflects railroads as old as the city itself. The work will culminate at an empty lot along the spur that is also visible from Walker Street.
