There are a lot of arts, but art of creation is the only one.
Suprematism is the primacy of pure feeling in creative art.
The term “Suprematism” refers to an abstract art, based upon “the supremacy of pure artistic feeling” instead of visual depiction of objects. It focuses on basic geometric forms, painted in a limited range of colours.
Suprematism as an art movement, was founded around 1913 – 1915 by soviet painter Kazimir Malevich (who was born to a Polish family near Kiev). The origin of suprematism was cubo-futurist art movement, which proliferate new artistic forms in painting, poetry and theatre as well as a revival of interest in the traditional folk art of Ukraine and Russia.
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”.
So, Suprematism does not embrace a humanist philosophy which places man at the center of the universe. It transmits of what for Malevich was the world’s only true reality – the absolute non-objectivity. Although Malevich himself announced the end of Suprematism in 1922, we can see the signs Suprematism in different kinds of art-practices till nowadays. Moreover, in 1923, Kazimir Malevich designed the project of a «suprematist» dress.
Suprematism-inspired collections was showed by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac (Autumn/Winter 1992-1993), Martine Sitbon (Spring/Summer 1998, Spring/Summer 2008), Wunderkind (Fall/Winter 2009-2010), Peter Pilotto (Fall/Winter 2011-2012), Roksanda Ilincic (Resort 2013), Marni (Spring/Summer 2014) and many others.
