RON MUECK/MŒBIUS conversation.

Ron Mueck in bed sculpture 2005 (an enormous woman laying down, isolated in solitary reverie) first presented at Fondation Cartier pour L’Art Contemporain, during the exhibition in 2005, might be seen again during the Vivid Memories exhibition. A special conversation project imagined by the Australian sculptor propose a setting with this sculpture surrounded by the page of Mœbius‘ notebook that were shown for the first time in 1999 during the Un monde réel exhibition. It’s all about a confrontation of different scale, the disproportion large of Ron Mueck and the infinitely detailed and meticulous drawings by Mœbius.

Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will present América Latina 1960-2013, coproduced with the Museo Amparo in Puebla (Mexico). The exhibition will offer a new perspective on Latin American photography from 1960 to today, focusing on the relationship between text and the photographic image. Bringing together seventy-two artists from eleven different countries, it reveals the great diversity of photographic practices of artists who appropriate the medium in different ways. This unique presentation will provide the visitor with the opportunity to delve into the history of the continent and to rediscover the works of major artists rarely exhibited in Europe.

Ron Mueck

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Ron Mueck has been invited to present his new sculpture at the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain. This is his first major exhibition in Europe since the hugely successful in 2005. In addition to six important recent sculptures the show includes 3 produced especially for this event. A new film recording their creation has been made for the occasion by Gautier Deblonde. Revealing the reclusive artist at work further emphasizes the sensitivity and power of Ron Mueck‘s sculpture and highlights its particular resonance for our time.
