Texts by Kristine Stiles, Alina Șerban, Jelena Vesić, What, How & from Whom / WHW

“I do one notebook for every show or project. It is like a pocket studio and research space. In the notebook drawings are pushed further to the limit and are not very PC. There are a lot of bad drawings, things that do not work out, lame jokes. Humor is hard to capture… Of the two hundred drawings in a notebook, thirty or fifty will make it onto the wall an maybe ten will make it into the general repertoire. The repertoire began in 2000 and since then drawings have been incorporated and discarded, rolling from one wall to the next.

I am the happiest when I draw in the notebook and I know the drawing is good. Translating it onto the wall is also good, but it is just a translation.

I draw, I happy.” (Dan Perjovschi)

A comic album once discarded from a public library and later found on the street by the artist on his way to his studio is transformed into a series of abstract collages. Using simple cut and paste tactics a collection of science fiction narratives is reorganised into images drifting away from definition to be reproduced as Risograph prints on the pages of Flashback Gordon.

Indoors Diary of a Pandemic. Nina Fuga. bruno.

These drawings give back the intimacy of the everyday to objects and postures which, exasperated within existing spaces, take new positions and discover new sides to themselves, giving life to a sym­phony of small theatrical pièces where stage and backstage are one and the same.

I disegni, questi disegni, nell’insita tensione del loro tratto, ci consen­tono di immaginare gli altri nel paradosso delle loro esistenze, esploso tra le pareti delle proprie abitazioni e di farci sentire meno soli, meno tristi. Immaginare gli altri e le altre, ci restituisce lo spazio del gioco, dell’assurdo, del surreale che fatichiamo a praticare mentre stiamo seduti sui nostri divani.

A miniseries on drawing

This enticing series of little books approaches drawing in its most specific acceptation, i.e. as a peremptory gesture that is gradually revealed, a tool at the service of thought and a primary form of representation. The pages feature both real and imaginary objects along with the caprices, secrets and flights of fancy of the artists involved. With all the speed and immediacy of a snack, browsing through this finger-lickin’ collection – jam-packed full of mouth-watering tasty tit bits – will certainly whet your appetite. And once you try one, you will keep coming back for more.
