Biography and Artist Statement

Capital traveling through bodies and materials

Pakui Hardware is the name coined by curator Alex Ross (NY) for the collaborative artist duo Neringa Cerniauskaite and Ugnius Gelguda, which began in 2014. The title Pakui Hardware refers to Pakui – special attendant of Hawaiian Goddess, who could circle Oahu island six times in a day. Thus Pakui Hardware is high-speed and brand politics as mythic semio-commodity as well as the desire to transcend the material limitations. Semio-Capital meets materiality.

The duo's work spans around the relationship between materiality, technology, and economy. How technology is shaping current economy and the physical reality itself, including the human body. In relation to the velocity of technological development, the matter becomes both an obstacle and a vehicle. These questions are analyzed through such examples as High Frequency Trading, Prometheanism, synthetic biology and new materiality.

Solo shows include venues of mumok, Vienna, kim? Contemporary Art Center, Riga, Contemporary Art Center (CAC), Vilnius, 321 Gallery, Brooklyn, New York, NADA New York (2014),  and group shows at Valentin, ParisModerna Museet, Malmö, Sweden, MMOMA, Moscow, CAC Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland, Exo Exo, Paris, CCS Bard / Hessel Museum of Art, New York.
