10 December 2013 – Dan Perjovschi

10 December 2013

This is the work of artist Dan Perjovschi – http://www.perjovschi.ro/ – who gave me permission to use this after I saw his installation at Kiasma, the museum of modern art, Helsinki, Finland.

His graphic ‘comment’ – titled ‘unframed’ – is about societal change and putting public space back into shopping malls. The reason I find it thought-provoking is because this sentiment is reflected by some local and regional governments as they see a role for traditional markets in regeneration programmes in inner cities. They argue that using the potential of public space to reinvigorate low- and moderate-income neighborhoods supports small-local businesses and can also provide fresh and affordable fresh produce to local communities and, at the same time, encourage urban farming and agriculture. We all need public space and Dan Perjovschi’s topical image has ‘hit the nail on the head’. Thanks Dan.
