Interview with artist Marija Nemcenko

Marija Nemcenko lives and works in the United Kingdom. She explores contemporary myths and their dissemination through popular media. Nemcenko stayed in Palestine as part of the 2019 Ways of Travelling John Berger Artist Residency, organised by the A. M. Qattan Foundation. In her research, Nemcenko focused on studying the storks’ annual migration from Lithuania to Africa, during which the birds land to rest in Palestine. Nemcenko was interested in studying the bird in relation to local Palestinian culture.
