Workshop »Unterwegs in der Landschaft Stadt« with Kay von Keitz (author and curator, Cologne) as part of the »Bielefelder City Walks«. RSVP until September 24, 2018

In the spirit of flâneurs and situationists, but also from the perspective of current artists, the urban landscape, which we generally refer to as a city, should be viewed and experienced together. A »different view«, which the arts have always allowed and bring us closer to, should be directed towards larger contexts, urban and architectural peculiarities as well as remarkable details. It deals with planned as well as unplanned, plausible and inexplicable, historical and atmospheric moments that are ignored in routine everyday perception.

Opening of the exhibition »Pakui Hardware«

Pakui Hardware was founded by Neringa Černiauskaitė and Ugnius Gelguda in 2014. They are interested in the close relationship between materiality, technology and economies. Central to their work is the question as to how far technology actually does alter economics and our physical/bodily perception of reality. Pakui Hardware investigate questions of automation, robotics, synthetic biology and the significance of new materials. The artist duo produces sculptures and installations suffused with various materials, images, and shapes, which are often reminiscent of futuristic settings. Here, fabric and material produced by technology encounter transparent, ephemeral materials; they determine the equally organic and synthetic appearance of their objects and spatial installations. Pakui Hardware will be developing a new project for their solo exhibition at Bielefelder Kunstverein.


Pakui Hardware, founded 2014 by Neringa Černiauskaitė, born 1984 in Klaipeda, Lithuania, and Ugnius Gelguda, born 1977 in Vilnius, Lithuania, had numerous solo shows since 2014, amongst others at SIC Room at Kiasma in Helsinki (FIN, 2017), MUMOK in Vienna (AUT, 2016) and at kim? Contemporary Art Center in Riga (LVA, 2015). Lately they took part in group exhibitions, e.g. at Kunstverein Braunschweig and Kunstverein Freiburg, at the Kunsthalle Basel (SUI) and at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (AUS, all 2017).
