Ugnius Gelguda and Neringa Cerniauskaite have started collaborating in 2009. Both artists are based in Brooklyn, New York.
Since their first project, the artists have been interested in visual memory and how it can be manipulated through usage of certain mediums. Their latest works include 16 mm films, photo slides, unrealized sci-fi scenario from the Soviet era, vinyl, and performance. By employing specific language of cinema and film, such as documentary or post-apocalyptic imagery, as well as the history of performance and its documentation, the artists return to failures and shattered opportunities of Communist and Modernist utopia, and create new possible histories of their own.
The latest work – Patterns (2013) – reveals a shift of focus to material history that is often overlooked and shadowed by the human History. Here the patterns become animated (hi)storytellers.
