Indre Serpytyte - (1944-1991). Former NKVD - MVD - MGB - KGB Buildings
Please join Parafin to celebrate the launch of 'Indre Serpytyte: (1944-1991). Former NKVD - MVD - MGB - KGB Buildings', a major new publication marking the conclusion of the artist's monumental photographic project.
Initiated in 2009 the series ‘1944-1991’ depicts buildings in Lithuania – many now in domestic use – that were used by the Soviet secret services, including the KGB. Accessing declassified government records Šerpytytė developed an archive of the buildings and then visited the sites and photographed them.
Works from '(1944-1991)' have been exhibited widely internationally including in the group exhibitions 'Conflict, Time, Photography' at Tate Modern, London and Museum Folkwang, Essen (2014 and 2015) and 'Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015' at MoMA, New York (2015).
