Fondation Cartier hosts Ron Mueck sculpture exhibition in Paris

Cartier‘s Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is hosting from 16 April to 29 September 2013 Ron Mueck’s exhibition of his latest works, 8 years since the previous collaboration which was met with great success.

In addition to six important recent sculptures the show includes three produced especially for this event. A new film recording their creation has been made for the occasion by Gautier Deblonde. Revealing the reclusive artist at work further emphasizes the sensitivity and power of Ron Mueck’s sculpture and highlights its particular resonance for our time.

A Ron Mueck exhibition is a rare event. Based in London, Ron Mueck has had highly acclaimed exhibitions around the world from Japan to Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, but shows of his new work in Europe have not been frequent occurrences. Mueck works slowly in his small North London studio, making time itself an important element in his creative process. His human figures are meticulously detailed, with surprising changes of scale that place them as far from academic realism as they are from pop art or hyperrealism
