STORIES WITHOUT BOUNDARIES BUT FULL OF LIES
In conversation with Les Liens Invisibles

Les Liens Invisibles is an imaginary, Italy-based artists' duo comprising Clemente Pestelli and Gionatan Quintini. Their work is an eclectic recombination of pop net culture, reverse-engineering techniques, social media subvertising and any other kind of media re-appropriation. Since 2007 Les Liens Invisibles have been infiltrating the global communication networks in order to join and expand the invisible connections between art and real life. Most of their artworks and interventions - which include a virtual suicide web service, the subvertising of many popular social networking platforms and a paradoxical tool to reclaim the truth through the fake - have achieved global media visibility and have been shown internationally. In activist manner, Les Liens Invisibles initiated the social petition platform Repetitionr.com in early 2010, a platform that "grants the success of every campaign proposed, offering the most advanced internet technologies to make participatory democracy a truly user-centered experience. Just a click and Repetitionr.com will fill your petitions with millions of self-generated fake signatures indistinguishable from the real ones." A fake or not a fake?

Les Liens Invisibles have been shown internationally at venues such as Arnolfini, Bristol (UK), MOTA - Museum of Transitory Art, Lubljana (Slovenia) or Galerija Galzenica, Velika Gorica (Croatia). Amongst others, their work has been comissioned and/or features by Turbulence, LX 2.0, transmediale and Edith Russ Site for Media Art.
