Commissaire Vicens Altaïo

Malévich, une histoire moderne, inventée où le faux (Fake) prend le pas sur la réalité. Un récit
en photos et dialogues entre deux personnages, un jeune et un autre plus âgé,
confrontant naiveté et expérience, mais trouvant les clés pour installer de manière fictive et parfois réelle
l’iconographie de Malevitch dans le rues de Barcelone. « Malevich is not dead, he lives in Barcelona »

elegance of art in the street, elegance of step

Remember Malevich: Cross and Black Square – Numancia street art Barcelona
Walking on these shapes. The structure does not derive from the relationship between the shape and the colours but from the vision emerging when walking through these shapes. Re-discovering the essence of Suprematism, this vertical vision from the highest point gives these figures the rank of a primary alphabet.


art shines, shoes too

Three Black Square and « Suprematism, 18th Construction » Barcelona Enric Granados Street / 15,75 x 21,65 inches / 40 x 55 cm
Remember Malevich, he writes : Color and texture are of the greatest value in painterly creation—they are the essence of painting but this essence has always been killed… In the art of suprematism, forms will live, like all living forms of nature.
Kasimir Malevich: From Cubism and Futurism
to Suprematism:
The New Painterly Realism, 1915

StreetArt- walking amount the art

Remember Malevitx: Madrazo street art Barcelona
Back or white? For the time being, black on white. A visual code, neutral writing in its widest sense, a graphic language system. Since the action takes place in the street, it becomes a minimalist poetic form.

Remember Malevitch: Arts Santa Monica Center Barcelona – Ramblas
The figure as a deviation towards another history of forms and writing –maybe joining Roland Barthes when he says that man faces the objective world without passing through any of the figures of history or sociability.


Mobile phone : virtually cross suprematism

Remember Malevitch: Bringing the Black Square out of its storage to let it radiate its sensitive and emotional nature, once again but in a different context.



Malevich street

Remember Malevich: Se habrá inspirado Borges en la obra suprematista de Malevich para su descripción de El Aleph?
El Aleph, un punto en el espacio que contiene todos los puntos, la historia del universo en un solo lugar y un solo instante. Dicen que está relacionado con el número 19. Impregnado con esta idea, caminaba sin rumbo por Buenos Aires. Desorientado, paré para buscar mi camino, levanté la cabeza, estaba en el cruce de la avenida Malevich con Petrograd.
