La galerie de la Biennale

Ceausescu press in Romania, Dan Perjovschi now leaves his mordant little images on the walls of museums and art centres. With a few lines and words he points up – in a totally relaxed way – the big questions facing us today: the distribution of wealth, globalisation, the art market, climate change. A single stroke turns a group of skyscrapers into a village complete with clocktower, and a single word turns the meaning of a drawing around. Perjovschi’s material comes from the contradictions in contemporary discourse, the random oversimplifications of the world we live in, and complexity denied by reduction to mere antithesis: white/black, rich/poor, right/wrong, etc. Black board, white chalk: the fragility of this artist’s drawings heightens the natural volatility of his view of society.
