Artist:
Deimantas Narkevičius (born 1964 in Utena, Lithuania; lives and works in Vilnius, Lithuania).

Materials:
Super 8 mm film transferred to video, color, sound; 9 minutes 30 seconds.

Description:
“The film Scena (2003), which was inspired by the modernist architecture of the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius, [highlights] the discrepancy between form and function: the building was initially constructed as an exhibition pavilion, but today’s ambitious programme at the CAC has alienated the institution from its original aim of realizing exhibitions ‘for everyone’.”
—”Deimantas Narkevičius: The Unanimous Life,” e-flux, October 26, 2009.

Scena is inspired by the architecture of one house. This building is in the style of the functional modernism of the 1960s. ‘The Palace for Exhibitions’ was dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution. By the beginning of the 1990s it was the stage for official art exhibitions.”
