Ugnius Gelguda and Neringa Černiauskaitė

The cinematographic vision in the work of Neringa Černiauskaitė (1984) and Ugnius Gelguda (1977) transforms seemingly recognisable spaces and historical figures into set designs and characters in unused cinematic / historical / social scenarios. Using the language and tools of cinema (through16 mm films), in their work the artists reflect upon the utopian aspirations of art that are covered in moss , they revive forgotten science-fiction fantasies of conquering space which they filmed in 1960s architecture, and make mythologised historical events become reflections of the workings of the human memory.
