Two Masters and Her Vile Perfume is a highly theatrical sculptural installation featuring Schnitger's signature wood and fabric structures. Themes of metamorphosis, divinity, decay, and sadomasochism—all of which have been present in Schnitger's past work—converge in an installation that transform the SculptureCenter's central exhibition hall. The structure of the work is reminiscent of a medieval piazza or even a cathedral where adulation, commerce, and politics occupy the same space. The installation is populated by figurative forms that suggest demons, ghosts, businessmen, bikers and other more abstract forms.
