‘Going from one political formation to another is a big, radical change’ says Deimantas Narkevicius. Originally trained as a sculptor, Deimantas Narkevicius began working with film in the early 1990s. His films examine the relationship between personal memory and political history, particularly in relation to the profound social changes experienced in Eastern Europe. Employing archival footage, voice-overs, interviews, re-enactments and found photographs, Narkevicius’s films and videos reinterpret historical events by playing with different narrative structures, such as memoir, documentary and drama.
This film is one of Tate’s ‘Global Studios’ series, in which we visit artists’ studios around the world. The artists also take part in question and answer sessions with visitors at Tate Modern, via online video.
