Art and Music I
The artist group PG -
video works
The 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”.

The 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.
