Narkevičius is one of the most internationally-renowned and acclaimed Lithuanian artists with his work widely represented in museums, art institutions and galleries around the world.

The installations and films of Deimantas Narkevičius are often described as artistic research into the relationship between historical documents of political repressions and memory. The artist is particularly interested in the way representation is used to construct perceptions of truth and reality, and the influence that personal and collective experiences, as well as the medium itself, have on the latter.

Art critic Neringa Černiauskaitė notes in her description of the artist's work that Narkevičius "adopts a program that combines the modalities of a completely free artist and authoritarian television, and becomes an editor or, rather, a 'moulder' of 'reality' information whose academic background in sculpture enables him to approach images from a distinctive spatio-temporal perspective."

Curated by the artist himself, Sounds Like the XX Century presents films, installations and objects from various periods that have not yet been shown to the Lithuanian audience.

Deimantas Narkevičius, 50, represented Lithuania at the 49th Venice Biennale in 2001, and received the prestigious Vincent van Gogh Award and the Lithuanian National Culture and Art Prize in 2008.

He has participated in Manifesta 2 and Manifesta 10, the Istanbul, São Paulo, Busan and Gwangju contemporary art biennials, Sculpture Projects Münster, as well as the Rotterdam, Oberhausen and Berlin international film festivals. Works by the artist are in major private and state art collections including MoMa in New York, Tate Modern in London, Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the French National Collection, and many others.
