Design and layout of Claudette Schreuders' monograph, published by Prestel (2011).
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.
