'Urzeala', which can mean network or fabric, is one of the rare, early drawings on paper by Dan Perjovschi. The work shows precisely such tissue structures of different densities, which are made up of small, sketchy depictions of faces. The entire sheet has been previously divided into a grid. Individual figures or groups of figures blow up the given cells, sometimes a further grid is laid over groups already underneath.

Dan Perjovschi used a very similar grid structure in 1999 to develop his contribution to the Romanian pavilion at the 48th Venice Biennial. He drew directly on the floor of the pavilion and had previously divided the floor into a grid structure.
