Lia Perjovschi

The Magic of the Gesture (Laces)

The work of Lia Perjovschi (*1961 in Sibiu / Romania, lives in Sibiu and Bucharest) encompasses performances, actions, installations, drawings, and text-based works in which the artist questions the collection, archival, and distribution of knowledge from society, art, and politics. In the mid-1980s, together with Dan Perjovschi, she founded the Contemporary Art Archive / Centre for Art Analysis (CAA/CAA), an ever-changing project which Perjovschi describes as a “context in motion”, an independent art institution, and a dynamic information center. In 1999 she also founded the interdisciplinary Knowledge Museum (KM), which still exists today.
