26 Mar 2015 Art Week: Heaven Carrier Opening Reception at Richard Taittinger Gallery
Richard Taittinger Gallery is pleased to present Heaven Carrier, an exhibition of new work by artist collective, Recycle Group. Comprised of Andrey Blokhin (b. 1987) and Georgy Kuznetsov (b. 1985), Recycle Group works with repurposed electrical equipment and industrial material to express concern for humanity’s increasing dependence on digital technologies. The presentation marks their first solo exhibition in the United States.
Recycle Group addresses the rising level of material waste as a byproduct of widespread consumerism and the high amount of pastiche that permeates contemporary culture. Simultaneously somber and satirical, their works comment on the existential crisis of current over-reliance on virtual worlds and online interconnectivity as a means of survival.
