(Mis)communication + not quite Lithuanian stories in Anastasija Sosunova’s Demikhov Dog at Ignalina Culture Centre

, Wednesday

Anastasija Sosunova presented solo exhibition Demikhov Dog at Lithuania’s Ignalina Culture Centre on December 3, 2017.

Organised by Rupert curator Adomas Narkevičius, Sosunova’s video installation brings together “fictitious characters, reality chimeras, and not quite Lithuanian stories” that draw from her research of Soviet Union scientist Vladimir Demikhov’s transplant operations where he created a two-headed dog for a short time.

Interested in “cultural differences and conflicts of identity,” the research becomes an allegory to explore language, representation and (mis)communication.**

Anastasija Sosunova’s Demikhov Dog solo exhibition was on at Lithuania’s Ignalina Culture Centre on December 3, 2017.
