Artist Project / Moscow Drawing

Dan Perjovschi

Dan Perjovschi’s expansive, sardonic mode of socio-political cartooning inscribes itself directly onto public spaces, turning walls and windows into wry message boards. The work featured on the following poster was created for the 2007 Moscow Biennial and executed on windows in the Russian capital’s partially completed Federation Tower, a ninety-three-story skyscraper in the city center designed to be Europe’s tallest building upon its scheduled completion in 2009.

Dan Perjovschi is an artist based in Bucharest. Recent solo exhibitions include “What Happened to US?” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and “I am not Exotic—I am Exhausted” at Kunsthalle Basel, both 2007. He is represented by Lombard-Freid Projects in New York. For more information, see www.perjovschi.ro [link defunct—Eds.] and www.lombard-freid.com.
