Three artists united as AES group in 1987. In some projects since 1995 the group collaborates with photographer Vladimir FRIDKES (AES+F group). The group creates various fantasy worlds, combining classical western mythology with contemporary global consumerism. An example for this work is the digital video installation “The Feast of Trimalchio”. Using the imagery of high-fashion, cinema, lifestyle magazines and luxury design, “The Feast of Trimalchio” is an Olympic-sized orgy of wealth and pleasure. Their work also includes photo-projects, video, sculptures (Angels + Demons. Parade) and installations.
