Based in London, Ron Mueck has had highly acclaimed exhibitions around the world from Japan to Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, but shows of his new work in Europe have not been frequent occurrences. Mueck works slowly in his small North London studio, making time itself an important element in his creative process. His human figures are meticulously detailed, with surprising changes of scale that place them as far from academic realism as they are from pop art or hyperrealism.
Ron Mueck has been invited to present his new sculpture at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain from April 16 to October 27, 2013. This is his first major exhibition in Europe since the hugely successful Fondation Cartier exhibition of 2005.
