Ron Mueck at the National Gallery of Canada!
National Gallery of Canada- In the exhibition Ron Mueck, the artist employs imitation and illusion to explore the ambiguous relationship between reality and artifice, creating figures that express the contradictions between the real world and the imaginary.
The figures seem to be alive: every detail – veins, wrinkles, moles, body hair, rashes – is crafted to such perfection that the result is remarkably convincing and deeply troubling. The size of the works – always larger or smaller than human scale – is equally disconcerting. Call 613-990-1985 or 1-800-319-2787.
