A4 Arts Foundation presents the Dan Perjovschi exhibition COMMENT, GLOBAL, BLACK ON WHITE, POLITICAL HUMOUR, FREEDOM, ARTIST, CITIZEN.
Born in 1961 in Sibiu, Romania, Dan Perjovschi lives and works in Bucharest, Romania. Trained to be a painter (at the George Enescu University of the Arts in Iasi, Romania). Since the early 1990s Perjovschi’s work has developed into a prolific drawing practice, focusing in particular on the satire.
Perjovschi’s wordplay & drawings have materialised around the world on windows, sidewalks and on the walls of iconic art museums including MoMA, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, Hamburger Kunsthalle,Germany; MOT Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, 48th and 52nd Venice Biennale, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden and the Tate, London, UK. Hundreds of Perjovschi witty works have been published in literary and political journals, such as Contrapunct and 22.
Unsparing toward the popular clichés circulating in the news media, he raises questions about politics, religion, the role of the individual in the collective, and the relationship of the global and the local.
For his show in February at A4 Arts Foundation, Perjovschi will spend two weeks in residence at A4, engaging the local context and reflecting/refracting his encounters through a constellation of drawings old and new that will be worked directly onto the gallery walls.
