Organized around the themes of models, monuments, and memorials-key subjects in Schutte's art-this volume offers a comprehensive selection of work from the late 1970s to today by an artist considered a key figure of his generation. Schutte's installations, sculptures, prints, drawings, and watercolours often take contradictory forms, and his art may seem to depict alien worlds. Yet his focus is everyday life, whose basic constituents-natural, cultural, political-he revises, using a broad range of materials and colours, while asking questions about the place of art in society. Schutte has long engaged with many of the traditional genres of sculpture-the reclining female figure and the commemorative portrait bust, for example-yet the results are utterly unconventional. A deeply contrarian spirit informs his approach, resulting in a transformation of standard and formulaic modes into singular statements that reflect on history, politics, social space, and collective experience. Together the works in this book comprise an impressive career marked by constant change and innovation.Biographie de l'auteur :

Description du livre Taschenbuch. Etat : Neu. Neu neuware, importqualität, auf lager - German artist Thomas Schutte makes sculpture which varies from giant, candy-coloured cherries to miniaturized castles. He manipulates size and materials like a master juggler, inventing familiar yet uncanny scenarios. Like Gulliver we wander through his bizarre worlds of shifting scale, a universe replete with food and shelter yet full of false promise: a museum that incinerates art; bronze potatoes; or his very own 'audience', made up of metal-clad robots assembled before his work. Schutte has also constructed a series of architectural models of institutions and monuments; their eclectic array of building typologies suggests de Chirico-like metaphysical spaces. 160 pp. N° de réf. du vendeur INF1000377826
