White medium Spatial Construction in wood, inspired in Gustav Klutsis
A white handpainted version of Gustav Klutsis’ structural design, taken, interpreted and raised by Beamalevich.
If Tatlin had his Monument to the Third International design turned into a real-life sculpture, we made sure the same would be done with Gustav Klutsis’ Spatial Constructions plans.
An art teacher and soviet propaganda pioneer himself, Klutsis’ experimentation on the field of architecture never built up beyond paper – until now.
This moving sculpture created from his most interpretable design of what a Spatial Construction was is part of a collection of a total four structures. This one being the next bigger size after our regular production one, it has been entirely made of recycled wood by Barcelona local woodcrafters, manually glue-free assembled piece by piece.
Made under supervision of Beamalevich – a Barcelona-based art editor and curator specialized in Malevich and European avant-garde artists -, this Spatial Construction becomes the only physical rendition to Gustav Klutsis’ avant-garde architectural mentality and building/construction vision. His ideas, visibly, seem to match all eras gone by since their birth.
The inner structures of the sculpture are movable and even removable, allowing endless possibilites of arrangement as a form of respecting the artist’s echoing plasticity even on the squarest of the forms.
Piece 1/4 of Beamalevich’s Spatial Constructions collection. Slightly bigger than our regular production model (same size as our “Medium” sized one) and painted in broken white, which gives it the extra weight and different finish as well as a new visual concept.
