Overview participating exhibitions
In his pictures of anonymous passers-by, Ugnius Gelguda lays bare inescapable elements of modern urban life: alienation and exclusion. He makes no effort to probe their personal histories or the context. On the contrary, through overexposure he removes all the details, and the situations and figures become more universal and interchangeable.
Ugnius Gelguda (Soviet Union, 1977), born and raised in Lithuania, is a multi-media artist who works with photography, video and audiovisual installations. He studied at the Vilnius Academy of Fine Art and was twice honoured by the Lithuanian Ministry for Culture. He received a special prize for his project Zalgiris at the Moscow International Festival of Arts. He lives and works in Vilnius.
