The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, La Fabrique Barbot et Fournier, France and the Triumph Gallery present a solo exhibition of the Recycle Group (Andrey Blokhin and Georgy Kuznetsov), being a collateral event of the 56th Venetia Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia).
The total site-specific installation CONVERSION will be staged at the church Saint Antonin, founded in the VII century. The project CONVERSION by the Recycle Group refers to the life of a modern man as it is in the age of the world web and new gadgets. Data transmission speed, constant data refreshing and availability— with every seventh person on earth owning a smartphone – have given birth to the cult of new technologies.
The Recycle Group’s project compares the globalization of information networks to the conversion to some new ‘religion’ where the scope of information available in the virtual space is a new presiding deity.
