Showing: Ron Mueck – “Mass” @ National Gallery of Victoria

The National Gallery of Victoria recently commissioned Ron Mueck to create an installation for their permanent collection, his most ambitious project to date. Entitled Mass, the work which debuted at the inaugural NGV Triennial, features 100 fibreglass and resin skulls, each one measuring about a meter high. As one of the most gifted living Australian sculptors, Mueck almost exclusively creates smaller or larger than life-size pieces. Judging from the stunning result of these skulls being housed in the 17th to 18th Century European Paintings Gallery, we think we can agree he made the right choice in this case.
