Deimantas Narkevicius

Born in Utena, Lithuania, 1964

Lives and works in Vilnius. Narkevicius started using film during the early nineties. His films exercise the intricate practice of memory and portray a contemporary society confronted with the painful processes of history. The camera offered him the possibility of exploring different narratives, allowing him to play with the course of time. In film he found a perfect medium for exploring both sound and visual language. The disjunctions between words and images in Narkevicius’s films make manifest the impossibility of an objective documentary. He eschews the close-ups that are a common feature of contemporary documentaries, used to demonstrate the veracity of an interviewee’s testimony. The central characters of Narkevicius’s narratives are often absent from the screen, replaced by objects, drawings and other surrogates.
