Realizing Kazimir Malevich’s Unfinished Film Script: An Adventure in Research-Creation.

Irina Lyubchenko is an artist and a scholar, who investigates intersections between the theories of the historical avant-garde and digital culture. In 2010, she graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Ottawa, and was the recipient of the Michel Goulet Award for the best thesis presentation. It is during her studies at the University of Ottawa that she developed a lasting fascination with the work and legacy of Kazimir Malevich, whose art and philosophy continue to inform her artistic and academic practice. Currently, Lyubchenko is a PhD candidate at Ryerson Joint with York Communication and Culture Program, where she continues to explore Malevich’s work and its impact on contemporary art. Her articles “Faktura as Noise in Markov and Malevich” and “Resisting Clarity / Highlighting Form: Comparing Vanguard Approaches in Poetry and Programming,” are published by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Leonardo Journal, respectively.
