Suprema as Debris

Suprema, invented by Malevich, nowadays seems simultaneously triumphant and unnecessary. It exists because it is impossible to get rid of. It exists as litter, as a floating stream of fragments, as cosmic debris. Actually, in a similar way, the future exists today – we see only its remnants, fragments, traces reflected in hallucinations and Hollywood cinema reel.

Flying groups of triangles, lines, stripes, circles: if we look for similarities between these Suprematist globs and any objects actually existing in the material world, then Suprema is mostly reminiscent of industrial waste, scraps, leftovers of some sort of invisible process. One might call this, indeed one wants to call this, progress. But the words just won’t come out. Not least because the core of every technical process contains a memory; moreover, a painful memory. Technology is in essence regressive. And when faced with the latest gadget, we always think of the Stone Age.
