Lithuanian artist Deimantas Narkevičius, to whom Lo schermo dell’arte dedicated Focus in 2013, focuses on the relationship between images, history and memory. His latest 3D feature film stages a story of his country’s folklore set in the microcosm of a remote village in the woods at the end of the 19th century, when daily communication was characterized by archaic/esoteric expressions full of symbolism. Among the protagonists are two girls and two itinerant musicians who observe disturbing events, unable to discern fantasy from reality. 3D, which originated in late 19th century stereoscopic photography (to which one of the characters in the film has dedicated himself), grants immersion into a magical world emptied of the effects usually sought by this new technology. The scenes are accompanied by flutes and the dialogues of the protagonists, an enchanted fairy tale in which man and nature live in harmony.
Deimantas Narkevičius (1964, Utena, Lithuania). His works have been exhibited in nearly 300 shows and 50 international festivals. Art institutions that have acquired and displayed his works include MoMA, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, and the Museo Nacional Reina Sofia in Madrid. Among his recent solo exhibitions are Base, Progetti per l’arte, Florence (2021), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2020), Muzej Suvremene Umjetnosti, Contemporary Art Museum, Zagreb (2015), Maureen Paley, London (2015), and Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto (2015).
