Winners of the 2010 Kandinsky Prize in the category "Young Artist: Project of the Year", the Recycle Art Group is already well-known among art lovers in Russia and abroad. The international symbol of recycling is the logo of the group. The artists Andrei Blokhin and Georgy Kuznetsov use worn car tires, plastic waste containers, wires, drinking tubes, plastic bags and broken gadgets for their installations.

In the exhibition, Recycle Art Group reflected on what is left of our time to the future generations, what artifacts the archaeologists will find after us and whether they can take their place in the "cultural layer". The exhibition presented 17 objects all of which were made from recycled materials.

"Recycle Art Group - young and talented artists whose works are famous internationally. They are looking for compromises and the means of making peace between incompatible and competing aspects of the modern world which is made of concepts and images. The "recycle" theme is the basis of their art. Thanks to Recycle Art Group, resin, plastic and many other things get a new life in museums and galleries. At Panasonic, we want to lead the industry in bringing about a "green revolution" and to become the leader in ecological innovations, so we are very excited to support this exhibition that will draw more attention to environmental issues," said Shigeo Suzuki, president of Panasonic Russia, at the opening of the exhibition.

As well as supporting the exhibition, Panasonic is also displaying its wide range of LUMIX cameras and lenses for the Russian market at the MAMM, including its G5 mirrorless camera, which was launched at a special press event at the museum in July, 2012.
