Claudette Schreuders, who lives and works in South Africa, is known for her distinctive carved and painted wooden sculptures which, as Okwui Enwezor has observed, ‘propose a new language resulting from a synthesis of African and European figural forms’. This major monograph brings together Schreuders’ works of the last 17 years, tracing her investigations into self-identity, isolation and belonging through the rich narratives of her various figurative groups.
