100 Years of Non-Objectivity
Poster series
"Art no longer cares to serve the state and religion, it no longer wishes to illustrate the history of manners, it wants to have nothing further to do with the object, as such, and believes that it can exist, in and for itself, without "things" (that is, the "time-tested well-spring of life")."

"I transformed myself in the zero of form and emerged from nothing to creation, that is, to Suprematism, to the new realism in painting - to non-objective creation."

"[Black Square is meant to evoke] the experience of pure non-objectivity in the white emptiness of a liberated nothing."

100 years ago in 1915 Kazimir Malevich stepped beyond the world of objective world creating his famous Black Square, Black Circle and Black Cross. Although Malevich claimed to have reached the summit of abstract art by denying objective representation still the emptiness of the black canvas does not mark the end of Malevich's pursuit of the abstract.

As during the last 100 years the contours of the objective world tended to fade more and more, this poster series "100 years of Non-Objectivity" not only celebrates the anniversary of his breakthrough, but also steps further showing a more profound void, which lies beyond the dark desert.

This poster series explores the liberation of shapes from their finite earthly existence. Geometric shapes finally lose their physical presence and merge with the void.
