Pakui Hardware: Underbelly

10 August 2019 00:00 - 26 January 2020 00:00

Neringa Černiauskaitė and Ugnius Gelguda have been working since 2014 as the art collective PAKUI HARDWARE. At the invitation of the museum they created "Underbelly", their largest installation to date, for one of the terraces, with a focus on the organs of the lower abdomen.

In eight growth chambers suspended from the ceiling glass organ prostheses and silicon arteries lie in nutrient solution, suggesting the biological process of growth. PAKUI HARDWARE describe their work as “Hybrids of the artificial and the natural, from that created by humans and that which is already there” and view synthetic biology as an opportunity to devise future scenarios in which people are independent of the organic, ultimately independent even of their own bodies.
