Kazimir Malevich :: Forms must be given life and the right to individual existence.
Object // Totem is an exhibition in which paintings are considered in their totality and in which sculptural works have a humanized character. Here is an ambiguity in material distinction and hierarchy. No visual or material element serves as mere background to any other in placement or prominence, but instead, is an end in itself. In the interruptions of expectations, intersections of planes and assemblies of forms, components are equally present and formalized, composing a language of emblems that speak to both personal and modernist art histories.
