Ron Mueck Sculpts 100 Massive Human Skulls for Latest Melbourne InstallationTitled ‘Mass.’
Ron Mueck has created his largest installation titled Mass for National Gallery of Victoria’s first Triennial this December. The site-specific piece is comprised of 100 human-like skulls scattered and piled up inside a gallery room. “Mass intrudes into the 18th Century Galleries like a glacier inching across a landscape, crowding out the powdered, bewigged lords and ladies, a reminder of all our fates,” said Mueck to the Sydney Morning Herald. The Australian sculptor has garnered worldwide acclaim for his hyperrealistic artwork depicting humans in different periods of their lives.
Mass at the National Gallery of Victoria Triennial is currently open to the public up until April 18, 2018.
