Deimantas Narkevičius was born in 1964 in Utena, Lithuania. He graduated from the Art Academy in Vilnius as a sculptor. He is a conceptual artist, a critic and exhibition curator.
He works in film and video to explore history with a contemporary, subjective point of view. The artist continually switches back and forth between moments from the past and the present, creating a sense of déjà-vu. Narkevičius deconstructs the linear narration, placing the story in both the past and the present, using the same techniques and styles that were seen in amateur films from the 1970s. He represented Lithuania at the 49th Venice Biennale in 2001 and exhibited at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003. He lives and works in Vilnius, Lithuania.
