His sculptures are excessive. Excessively alive and expressive. Excessively real as well. He had great success with his work in 2005; he does us the honour of coming back to Paris until October 27, with new sculptures. Ron Mueck is at the Cartier foundation and the team of the Opéra Cadet heartily recommends the exhibition!
Indeed, the works of Ron Mueck are sculptures. They are taller or smaller than reality and that’s how you know. But if you forget about scale, the characters are troubling real. So troubling they could easily make you forget about reality…
Mueck hyperrealist. You wonder about all these characters, all these bodies. They are so very moving and captivating that you could invent them a history, a life story, almost a soul. And when the comments are done by moviemaker David Lynch, eccentricity is naturally present.
