About the publication
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 How To Make Sculpture Move, 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 images unfold via a poetic assemblage of linguistics genres, word play and critical references, culminating in conversations the artist had with her peers on 'how to make sculpture move'.
