A replica of Kazimir Malevich's GOTA plaster architecton (Arkitekton Gota, 1923) is here displayed, on sale as a unique piece.
This reproduction, entirely made of wood, is an individual creation by local wood crafters based on the GOTA’s interpretation by Beamalevich, a Barcelona based art editor and curator specialized in Malevich and European avant-garde artists.
The GOTA Architekton is a vertical structure, a "planit" in the words of Malevich, and a clear example of the artist attempts to extrapolate the Suprematist pictorial system into architecture. There are references to a skyscraper on its edges, although no specific building to be identified.
The lack of information about access, circulation or use on its surfaces is a reason behind the artist designing and creating the Architectons - to propose his conviction that new architecture can arise simply from the assembly of abstract volumetric masses rather than from a design based on the use.
The size of the item is exactly as the original GOTA Architecton. The blend of different woods is glued together and covered with several coats of white paint plus a drawn black circle.
Made in Barcelona in 2008.
