Biography

The Russian art duo Andrey Blokhin and Georgy Kuznetsov, otherwise known as the Recycle Group, create work that is rooted in the concept of opposition: confronting contemporary iconography with the ancient, the sacred with the everyday, and Western European values with distinctly Russian sensibilities. Their practice deals with contemporary concerns, such as in an installation that presents the all-consuming cult of Facebook as a real religion, complete with a sans-serif F cross and commandments based on the social network’s terms and conditions. The work is not merely a send-up of modern diversions; it explores how seemingly innocuous interactions with technology are mediating the way we see the world, as well as how our waste will one day communicate our reality to future generations.
