'Pakui Hardware. Underbelly' at the Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig

July 23, 2019
Author Echo Gone Wrong

Artistic duo Pakui Hardware, comprised of Ugnius Gelguda and Neringa Černiauskaitė, has been tracing how Capital travels through bodies and materials. By combining natural and man made materials, sterile and organic forms, the artists merged design, biology and art history into hybrid and curious creatures immersed in their autonomous environments. “Underbelly” is an entirely new immersive installation inspired by and developed for the luminous spaces of MdBK Leipzig. In it, the viewer enters a sort of an oversized belly – soft and open for inspection. Transparent quasi-familiar objects are impressed in the fabric of the giant belly – they too resemble enlarged organisms. They voluntarily expose themselves for examination, opening their interiors for the viewer’s eye. Invasive medicine of the past is substituted here by (un)conscious and enthusiastic self exhibition and health’s data philanthropy. Our underbellies are now uncovered for everyone.
