Vernissage de Deimantas Narkevičius "The Fifer"

Opening Saturday, October 12 from 4 pm to 8 pm
Exhibition from October 12 until November 23, 2019

The Fifer is Deimantas Narkevičius seventh solo exhibition at gb agency. It presents the latest work of the same name by the Lithuanian artist, focused on an archival photograph from which a series of sound states unfold, taking the form of a holographic video, a bronze cast sculpture and a digitally produced image.
The Fifer is conceived as a layered exploration of converging temporalities, modes of existence and perceptions of realities around us, such as the time of the melody, the vantage point of the bird and that of the flute player, together with the historical moment in which this scene is being played out; of the entangled relation between the natural & untouched, and the synthetic & manufactured; as well as of the meaning of documentality itself, provoking the question of by which criteria do we recognise or trace something as significant, factual or true to us, today ?
