Pomidor group was founded in Moscow in 2018 by artists Polina Egorushkina and Maria Sarkisyants.
Pomidor group aims to do social and artistic research and study practices of interaction and cooperation. Artists focused on the creation of socially engaged projects devoted to the themes of fellowship, community building and emigration. The group views their work as creating situations, experiences, and spaces for the development of critical analysis and solidification of communities. Besides that, the art team focuses on social and political topics.
In 2021 the group opened the first home art residence in Russia, located in the Moscow Area in the house of group participant Maria Sarkisyants. The Pomidor residence is a community art project, a residence created by artists for artists.
Pomidor group works have been exhibited at various institutions, such
as Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Garage Museum of Modern Art,
Vinzavod Center of Modern Art, Fabrica Center of Modern Art, etc.,
and also at The Wrong 4th Biennale of Digital Art.
In late 2022, relocated to the UK.
