Henk Schut is a multidisciplinary artist whose ideas derive from posing questions, looking into environments, communities, historical events and current affairs. With each project he looks for the most suitable form in which to express his ideas. His work often contains a certain playfulness – without trivializing the subject, but in a way that reinforces its explanatory power. He has an integrative approach to the environment where he presents his work. Architectural space and sound therefore often play an important role.
In 2000, after having worked and lived in London for 16 years as a director and designer, he started his own studio on the NDSM Wharf in Amsterdam-Noord. The diversity of his skills gives him the freedom to move between different art forms. Each art form nurtures the other and themes develop through the different disciplines. Any specific work is a crystallization of this continuous proces.
He has shown his work at KadS (Kunst aan de Schinkel), NDSM Fuse, Soledad Senlle Art Foundation, Noord-Holland Biennale, Art Rotterdam, V International Arts Festival Magdeburg and De Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam, amongst others.www.henkschut.nl
