North-7 аrt group

Art group. Research base. St. Petersburg, Russia

North-7 - a group of artists emerged from the experimental research base founded in 2013 by the group of friends-graduates from St.Petersburg State Secondary Art School and ProArte Foundation School for Young Artists.

The artists investigate national context with no regard to already existing institutional dictates or intellectual trends.

North-7 is far self-reliant artistic organism, extracting strong energy from the process of inner relations between community participants. Group participants experiment with different artistic languages and forms while performative practices remain the main activity for the group as they represent an essential form of collective involvement in living artistic experience.

Group members: Alexandr Tsikarishvili, Nestor Engelke, Petr Dyakov, Leonid Tskhe, Anna Andrjievskaya, Nestor Kharchenko, Oleg Khmelev, Liza Tsikarishvili and friends.
