As part of the Norwegian space’s Oslo is Burning series, the event is introduced with the image of a petri dish as the website announcement background and opens with a text speculating on the effects of networked connectivity on the underwater species being disrupted by transatlantic communication cables: “the one[s] connecting the North Americans and Europeans attached to their shiny screens via the so called Internet.”
It links the flows of information running through these cables and the “extremophiles” they draw together with the unseen disruption caused to the “intraterrestrials” that already exist in these underwater ecologies: “Notions of life, and space, and survival redefined. Again.”
Recent exhibitions Pakui Hardware (aka Neringa Černiauskaitė and Ugnius Gelguda) have been a part of include Dawning with Fenêtre Project, the Grégoire Blunt and Emmy Skensved-organised Deep Skin group exhibition and their Lost Heritage solo show at kim? early last year.
