The battery dies at 30 %, again. Mischieving nature compressed to gadget, performing things on its own, clogging seamless communication. Cut off from the network, a body reclines on spring grass while staring into a starless sky. Across blue-hued layers are other bodies, unreachable but abundant with recourses, asteroids, like lonely gas stations reverberating in immense space. Bodies in landscapes. One – on the spring grass with a dead phone battery. Others – in scapes beyond human comprehension. Bodies as landscapes provide recourses for expansion. Transformed by technology, wired for efficiency. Bodies who have never yet met, but are already connected through capital and high-res images of their bodily surfaces. Distant surfaces – the dead phone’s screen savers.

Pakui Hardware is the collaborative artist duo formed by Neringa Cerniauskaite and Ugnius Gelguda. In their work, they trace Capital traveling through bodies and materials.

The exhibition features over thirty sculptures, paintings, videos, and large-scale installations from throughout Ward’s career, highlighting his status as one of the most important and influential sculptors working today. New Museum, New York
In her mesmerising installation Faint with Light and video parable The Needle and the Larynx, normative bodies and genders undergo radical transformations. The artist’s own body, mutated and remodeled, becomes the site in which her hypnotic fantasies are played out. At Copenhagen Contemporary
Like the dead metaphors that litter ordinary language (the body of an essay, the face of the clock), painting has metabolised many corpses over time. Plants, bread, nudes and apples in these paintings connote a generalised sense of art history and the language of painting as much as they refer to the objects themselves. At Giò Marconi, Milan
