The hyper-realistic sculptor Ron Mueck has created three new commissions for inclusion in his solo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris. Using his trademark disproportionately sized people, he has fashioned an unsettling street scene between two petite figures, an immense old couple relaxing under a parasol and a perfect woman carrying a baby and packages. The Australian artist, who lives in London, is also exhibiting early works such as Mask II (2002), which looks like a giant self-portrait. The show also includes a documentary, enabling the visitor to observe the artist’s everyday practice working in his studio.
Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris, until 29 October 2013.
