Artist Book – ‘How To Make Sculpture Move’ art Ruta Butkute / text Emily Kocken / publisher Jap Sam Books / designer Eva van der Schans

about the book: https://www.japsambooks.nl/products/how-to-make-sculpture-move 

Sculpture, choreography, and installation are the main pillars of Ruta Butkute’s art practice. Her method is guided by a reflective approach to the physicality of sculpture and the relation to the performers, audiences, and the spaces in which they interact. She developed a new medium she calls ‘sculptural performance’, which places objects, sculptures, and space in a transformative field, enabling the direction of movement. In this book, a collaboration between Ruta Butkute and Emily Kocken the vital elements of Butkute’s latest work are brought together to create an experience that manifests her unique take on sculpture and performativity. New meanings behind the images unfold via a poetic assemblage of linguistic genres, word play and critical references, culminating in conversations the artist had with her peers on ‘how to make sculpture move’.
