Known for drawing with felt pen directly onto the walls and windows of galleries in-situ during exhibitions, Dan Perjovschi’s installations take the form of satirical newspaper cartoons or graffiti. Commenting on current political, social or cultural issues, ideas are extracted from international news stories and his own personal observations of everyday life. The gallery becomes a cavernous site of communication and exchange, reflecting what is happening in the world around us at that specific moment in time.

Simple, direct and humorous, individual drawings extend from floor to ceiling, without the control of any system or order. Working in an improvised and spontaneous way, Perjovschi sums up the current state of affairs we are confronted with on a daily basis under neoliberal capitalism. Temporary and ephemeral, the work disappears when the exhibition is over and the gallery repainted.

During the Festival month Perjovschi will be in the gallery for limited time periods, enabling visitors to observe him working.

On Sat 27 February, 3.45pm–4.45pm, Dan Perjovschi discusses his work in the gallery. More information here.
