Ivan Gallery is delighted to invite you to the opening of Lia Perjovschi’s first solo show in the gallery. “Timeline with witnesses” presents a chronology of events built by the juxtaposition of images, objects and text, a series of notes and key words developed by the artist, that shape a subjective history revealing her particular vision on the world.

Experiments, Nonconformism, Strategies, Name changing, Self Empowerment, Reclaiming Knowledge, Timeline, Mind Maps, Projects, Blow Up Installations, Creating institutions, Organising Networks, Empower, Documenting, Newspapers, Mapping, Forensics.” (Lia Perjovschi)
