How did you first meet and start collaborating as artists?
Andrey Blokhin and Georgy Kuznetsov of Recycle Group © Recycle Group.
We have known each other since childhood, but did our first project together as "Recycle Group" in 2008. Before that we worked separately but always advised each other, after realising that each of us have a role in creating the work and we started to work as a group.
Where does the name, Recycle Group come from?It was the name of the first exhibition that we did together in 2008 after that everybody started to call us those guys from recycle.
As an artistic duo, what is the breakdown of your roles?We create everything together, each of us works with production also so there isn’t any particular role breakdown.
Your exhibition at Gazelli Art House, is called Keep Me Updated Your Holiness. Tell us about the title?This is inspired by the new Nazca lines that were used as a messages to the divine.
With this project we tried to convey the importance of applications (turning them into icons) that we all use to show how the Divine would communicate with humans today, as before it communicated through other people as prophets etc, suggesting the internet as the vehicle for faith as it is now possible to provide the information directly, showing all humans the same message.
