Ron Mueck 


I am a bit of a museum geek, so over the summer I got Locky and Jules to see Ron Mueck at the NGV with me, and we loved it!

Taken from the NGV website-

"Mueck’s sculptures are some of the most widely acclaimed, prominent and identifiable works in the international contemporary art arena.

Often naked and suspended in states of self-consciousness, introspection or deep contemplation, his figures present both emotional and physical states of exposure. As viewers we experience a level of unease that is borne of a voyeuristic awkwardness, as though we have invaded some kind of personal space. However, we also identify with the human condition these poignant moments express.

Astounding in their apparent realism and compelling in their ability to invite interaction Ron Mueck’s works have earned him a singular place as the creator of some of the most evocative sculptures of our time. This is the most comprehensive exhibition of work by the Australian-born, London-based artist to have been presented in the southern hemisphere. It includes four new works by Mueck in addition to some of his major, recognised works including the iconic Dead Dad 1996/97."

The show is until 18 April, so do check it out if you are in Melbourne! :)
