Vika Begalska & Aleksander Vilkin
The art duet of Vika Begalskaya and Alexander Vilkin was formed in 2014.
The projects of Vika Begalskaya and Alexander Vilkin continue the experience of modeling through painting of an equal society, where communication is carried out regardless of the “type”, gender and occupation. Diversity is manifested both at the level of plots and images, and at the level of technical presentation. People, animals, birds - the inhabitants of the phantasmagoric forest - seem ephemeral, but in fact they are real. Each has its own name and history, and they all coexist in the anarcho-commune created by the artists. The characters of mythologies are all equally involved in the system of socio-political and economic relations, forming something like "workers' associations" (Source: VLADEY).
In 2015, Begalskaya and Vilkin, as part of the Teresa group, were nominated for the Innovation State Prize in Contemporary Art.
The works of the art duet Begalskaya / Vilkin are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (Antwerp), the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, and the State Tretyakov Gallery.
