I’m Visvaldas Morkevičius a visual artist.

Photography seems to be one of the most accurate mediums for reproducing reality. But even if a picture looks accurate or realistic, it can as easily manipulate the sense of reality and image perception. Images can be visual, acoustic, motoric, sensoric and many more things and forms. An image of objects, phenomena, events, that arise in one’s memory or imagination is a restoration of a previous perception or experience mixed with the context of the moment it's seen. In my work, these ideas are explored in practice through the subjects-objects relation, subconsciousness, self intangibility, dreams and fiction. My works are self-analytic and intimate.

I use anthropological photographs, ordinary snapshots, constructed images, objects or different contexts. By using a variety of Low-Fi and Hi-Fi aesthetics I’m working with materials ranging from classical analog to modern digital tools. In this way, I manipulate the sense of time in my works and their perception.
