Ron Mueck Hyper-realistic sculptures Ron Mueck takes over the whole Fondation Cartier with his hyper-realistic sculptures for the seconde times after 2005 exhibition. The Australian artist reveals three works created for the occasion, as well as six other recent works. His human figures seem more than lifelike, reflecting Mueck’s almost obsessive attention to detail and his fascination with the conflict between the living and its imitation. A new film accompanies this spellbinding journey to discover the creation secrets of these unique art works.
