How To Make Sculpture Move, a collaboration between artist Ruta Butkute and artist/writer Emily Kocken. The project puts language and objects in a dynamic dialogue, creating new functions for audience and performer, in the context of an artexhibition, live performances, moderated talks, and readings.

At Arti  et Amicitiae the first phase of the project is presented via Direct Me to the Centre of Gravity : an installation of new performative sculptures by Ruta Butkute and a sound installation by Emily Kocken, accompanied by a public program of live performances, including a fold designed by Eva van der Schans.

A book, How To Make Sculpture Move, will be published by Jap Sam Books in 2022.
