AES Group was originally formed in 1987 by the conceptual architects Tatiana Arzamasova and Lev Evzovich and the multidisciplinary designer Evgeny Svyatsky. Exhibiting abroad from 1989, the group expanded its personnel and name with the addition of the photographer Vladimir Fridkes in 1995. AES+F’s recent work has developed at the intersection of photography, video and digital technologies, although it is nurtured by a persistent interest in more traditional media–sculpture especially, but also painting, drawing, and architecture. Deploying a sophisticated, poetic dialogue among these media, and plumbing the depths of art history and other cultural canons, AES+F’s grand visual narratives explore the values, vices, and conflicts of contemporary culture in the global sphere.
By now the subject of almost 100 solo exhibitions at museums, exhibition spaces, and commercial galleries worldwide, works by AES+F have been shown in such prestigious venues as the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, ZKM in Karlsruhe, Casino Luxembourg, Kiasma in Helsinki, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Tate Britain in London, Institute of International Visual Arts in Iniva, the Passage De Retz in Paris, the Vanhaerents Art Collection in Brussels, MACRO Future in Rome, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg, the Museum of Fine Arts in La Chaux-de-Fonds, and many others.
