Group PG was founded in 1998. It now consists of Ilya Falkovsky, Alexey
Katalkin and Boris Spiridonov. PG is a play on words that can be interpreted
differently, for example as Criminal Group, Hydrant
or Hand Grenade.
group activity is multifunctional. It publishes its own magazines
and postcards, releases musical albums, makes comics and performances.
The main topics are the cruel realities of daily life, but it is
ironically reflected through a lyric approach of Moscow psychedelic
culture. The Artists play the roles of Russian massmedia charcters:
gangsters, Chechen extremists, street hooligans, subculture representatives.
The group unites different lines of activity into multimedial
comics installations where photos and graphics go together
with video and soundtrack.
