Research of Ian Kiaer Artist. The relation with his instalation and my prototypes.

Ian Kaier’s installations conject illusionary atmospheres with spartan theatricality. Often researching specific subjects relating to art, architecture, philosophy, and social theory as departure points, Kaier’s work transcends literal reading to create suggestions of invented narratives. In Russian Project, Kaier’s arrangement of paintings and objects is both traditional gallery exhibition and plausible stage set. The portable cupboard and colourful canvases trigger images of domestic space, and act as individual formal elements referencing Supremacist compositions. Though his work, Kaier explores social interaction with the constructed environment, alluding to both utopian ideals and their failure.Suprematism is fundamentally opposed to the postrevolutionary positions of Constructivism and materialism. Constructivism, with its cult of the object, is concerned with utilitarian strategies of adapting art to the principles of functional organization. Under Constructivism, the traditional easel painter is transformed into the artist-as-engineer in charge of organizing life in all of its aspects.

Malevich´s suprematism, in sharp contrast to Constructivism, embodies a profoundly anti-materialist, anti-utilitarian philosophy. In “Suprematism” (Part II of The Non-Objective World), Malevich writes:

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”).
