Schermo dell'Arte - Archivio Film Presented at Lo schermo dell'arte 2012

Interviewed for his first Italian one-man show, after his participation at the Venice Biennale 1999, Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi talks about his life and the origins of his work, allowing himself to be observed by the camera and a live audience while he animates the walls of the Museo MACRO in Rome with his pungent drawings. In what takes on the characteristics of performance, the artist reiterates the suggestions fixed in magic marker on the blank pages of his notebook in his typical language: from graffiti on walls to newspaper pages, everything becomes potential material for Perjovschi to work on.
Divided into thematic chapters, the film tells the story of the show The Crisis is (not) Over: Drawings and Dioramas, describing a poetic manifesto for the artist.
