Using collages, photographs and black-and-white works by the sculptor, Brancusi and his context examines important events that took place before Brancusi’s birth, during his lifetime and after his death.
Lia Perjovschi (b. 1961, Sibiu, Romania. Lives and works in Sibiu and Bucharest) is a founder and coordinator of CAA CAA (Contemporary Art Archive and Centre for Art Analysis) an organic work-in-progress project (under different names since 1985) and KM (Knowledge Museum, an interdisciplinary research project from 1999-today). Her activity can be summarised as a journey from her physical body to the universal body of knowledge and was shown in more then 500 exhibitions, lectures, workshops around the world, while her artistic practice comprises various media, from performance to assemblage, from drawing and text to site-specific installations of objects, facts, diagrams, mind maps and timelines. From her earliest days mounting performances and exhibitions in her apartment, in the university or throughout the city, to her recent plans for the Knowledge Museum, Lia Perjovschi has been concerned with producing opportunities for intellectual exchange. In the early 1990s, Lia turned her studio into the Contemporary Art Archive, an unofficial setting where visitors could survey magazines, books and reproductions of art works from around the world.
