Presentation and screening of the film “The Modern Flat” with the author Dainius Liškevičius


On 23 February, at 7 pm, presentation and screening of the film “Modern Apartment” by LTMKS member Dainius Liškevičius will take place in the SODAS2123 Act Hall. Hosted by Danutė Gambickaitė.

Artist Dainius Liškevičius invites us into his living space where the line between the mundane and the creative is blurred. Home videos and contemporary documentary footage form the film’s cohesive tapestry, with the artist’s flat playing a central role. The flat reveals the everyday world of not just the artist but also his family. This microcosm shows the many ways how day-to-day activities – the ritual of removing the Christmas tree, parties, moving furniture, choosing which drawings will go on the wall, drinking tea – are transformed into performances. The private home space turns into a scene, and family members become actors. The mysterious story of the flat is unraveled in parallel with that of the artist’s works.

Dainius Liškevičius is a member of the Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists’ Association. He represents the Lithuanian “Break Generation”, consisting of artists who contributed to the renewal of artistic expression after the restoration of Lithuanian independence. He creates installations, photographs, and performances, further blurring the boundaries of genres and seeking new forms in contemporary art. Liškevičius’ creative work is characterized by contextuality, irony, civic engagement, and social criticism. Responding to the topography of a specific place, he investigates people’s behaviors and experiences, identity and cultural values, the collision of public and private spaces, and personal and collective memory. In 2015, Dainius Liškevičius represented Lithuania at the 56th Venice Biennale, where he presented the project “Museum”. In 2021, he was awarded the Lithuanian National Culture and Art Prize.
