Almost all my projects are about borderline states, when the “recognizable” reality comes into con­tact with other facets of reality and we see it in a particular perspective. This friction at the boundary of dimensions gives rise to a certain kind of gaze – a paradox that I try to convey in accessible terms with the help of painting, graphics, animation, music and installations.

The poetics of the work of Vladimir Grig grows not out of the glorious genetic reserves of Hollywood but from the stem cells of Soviet book publishing. The country that reads more books than any other in the world was able to forge a singular visual language behind the Iron Curtain, which in the post-modern age has been a rich source material for artists. But while for Kabakov or Pivovarov the use of aesthetic codes from the 1950s and ’60s was part of the personal history of complicity and the subse­quent critique of these codes by extreme identification with them, for Vladimir Grig, who was born two decades later, this language is a detailed subject for study and a means of immersion into an aes­thetic and time. Grig’s aesthetic games can be read as a kind of nostalgia, but his nostalgic journey into the past turns out to possess unexpected relevance.
