Organised around the themes of models, monuments and memorials, this volume offers a comprehensive selection of Schutte's work from the late 1970s to the present. Schutte's installations, sculptures, prints, drawings and watercolours often take contradictory forms and seem to depict alien worlds. Yet his focus is everyday life and its basic constituents (natural, cultural, political), which he revises while asking questions about the place of art in society. Schutte engages with traditional genres of sculpture (the reclining female figure and the commemorative portrait bust, for example) yet his works are utterly unconventional. A deeply contrarian spirit informs his approach, and the works in this book document an impressive career marked by constant change and innovation.
