Vygandas Šimbelis [Das Vegas] | PANORAMA TIME

The solo exhibition “Panorama Time” by Vygandas Šimbelis aka Das Vegas, Prospect Gallery / Lithuanian Photographers Association (Gedimino Ave. 43, Vilnius, Lithuania).

Traveling the world with a broken camera is a challenge in itself. As a result, the nomad collects only corrupted images, fragmented memories and experiences. The question in the exhibition is how a broken camera and defective images affect your personal impressions and memories? This exhibition is about travel, memory creation and restoration. Memories and experiences do fragment themselves and get forgotten. Sometimes we simply delete some of the photos: the moment of deletion is also related to memory correction. And in this exhibition, the artist shows these reminiscence, metonymic memories and stories.
