Hyperrealism, this is not a body!

  • The Maillol Museum exhibits about forty hyperrealistic sculptures and confronts us with the world of perfect illusion
  • The great names of hyperrealist sculpture are on display. We see in particular works of Ron Mueck, Erwin Wurm, Maurizio Cattelan, Robert Graham...
  • This exhibition on hyper-realist art is spectacular and disturbing, even disturbing
  • The sculptures are more real than life characters, human size with a precision and a sense of detail bluffing
  • It is necessary to approach to make sure that they are indeed sculptures and not real beings made of flesh, with their hairs, their wrinkles...
  • The purpose of hyper-realism, besides the exceptional technical performance, is to provoke and destabilize us
  • This art confronts us with the current world with questions about its violence, poverty, aging bodies ...
  • The place of this exhibition, in the Maillol museum, with the mirror of the magnified bodies of Maillol's sculptures, adds to the questioning and makes the message of hyper realism stronger
  • This exhibition arrives in Paris after having toured the world: Spain (Bilbao), Belgium (Liege, Brussels), Netherlands, Australia ...
  • We loved this exhibition, we were bluffed by the works and surprised by all the questions raised by this exhibition
  • An exhibition to see with your teenagers!
