Playing with the notion of modernism and the early avant-garde as an experimental and alternative way of “making art”, the work references the white, tiled laboratory and the test animals there. The references go on with Malevich use of White Square on white background, the cross and the square as preferred forms of Suprematism. The “Homage to Kasimir Malevich” was first shown at “Orient/ation”, the 4th Istanbul Biennial curated by René Block in 1995.
