The burnt Karl Marx portrait on thick plywood is very far from being flat. On the contrary, the relative position of the base and the picture create a convincing sculptural image. A shadow of nostalgia for the Soviet mentality sneaks into the ironic portrait of the German philosopher as the image of Maneki-neko – the beckoning cat. Theoretical integrity of the artist’s perception of the history of art puts the object of art in the position of text where the only tools for its objective perception are partition and mathematical analysis.
