“Behind the Lines: Lia and Dan Perjovschi” book will be launched today at the Anthony Frost Library (Calea Victoriei 45), 18.00, in the presence of the authors. The volume consists of the artists’ international, individual and common works of art. Professor David Crowley, Head of Critical Writing in Art and Design at the Royal College of Art, interprets the extraordinary work of these ground-breaking artists. Performances, installations and objects are featured alongside enigmatic timelines and drawings – all explored through their diverse contexts.
From communist Romania in the 1980s to the white cubes of the international art world today, these artists have maintained a sharply critical and sometimes ironic view of the world in which they live and work. Placing their work in the critical and sardonic tradition of marginalia, Crowley examines the ways in which Dan and Lia Perjovschi draw and write on bodies, on printed matter and institutions.
