Heritage
End-exam work in Gerrit Rietveld academy. 07.07.2010- 11.07.10
sculptural installation by artist Ruta Butkute

When does an existing form lose its functionality and become a memoir?
When does furniture transform into sculpture?

The installation Heritage is based on a visual play of form, texture, surface, memory, ready-mades and cultural archetypes.
A displacement of function, I question the receivers interpretations of the unique, discovering the object and using its visual qualities in a sculptural way, freeing the object from its original function or use.
