Maxim Kashin’s Contemporary Interpretation of Suprematism


Maxim Kashin’s take on suprematism could very well be a modern version of Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors. The New Suprematism installation took place in Moscow earlier this year, with the space measuring in at a mere 50 square meters. Kashin, who owns an interior design and architecture studio, loves to create a symbiosis of geometry of space and functionalism. The installation provides a glimpse at the future through the use of a geometric pattern and geometric mirrors. Combining the two creates an endless immersion of a Suprematist three-dimensional space.

“The idea of Suprematism is based on the superiority of pure geometry and color over the established ideas about form and space,” explains Kashin. “Square and elementary forms, like circles, lines, and crosses, form the basis of Suprematist compositions.”

The New Suprematism installation is shaped like a rectangle with quadrant mirrors placed opposite one another. The endless reflection created has a name – Mise en abyme, or the principle of nesting dolls – a technique used to create a “picture in a picture” effect. More mirrors, these shaped like parallelepipeds, are located between the first two to create a 3D interpretation of Kazimir Malevich’s Suprematist compositions. The geometric pattern becomes infinity in the plane, highlighting the lines, geometric shapes, and volumes.
