Sara Hildén Art Museum in Finland started “Ron Mueck” exhibition from June 2nd to October 16th, 2016. His works have never previously been exhibited in the Nordic countries.
Born in 1958 to German parents in Melbourne, Australia, Ron Mueck first came to public attention when his sculpture “Dead Dad” starred in the 1997 exhibition “Sensation” at the Royal Academy in London.
Mueck has since shown himself to be a major sculptor whose work elicits an immediate emotional response, by using all the traditional elements of his medium: pose, gesture, facial expression, scale and realism. Mueck’s subject matter – for all its universality – is deeply private, concerning the unspoken thoughts and feelings of all human beings.
This exhibition presents ten sculptures, a series of photographs depicting the artist at work and Gautier Deblonde’s film “Still Life: Ron Mueck at Work”.
