Hyperrealism Sculpture

Hyperrealism Sculpture

Ceci n'est pas un corps.

22.11.19 - 03.05.20


An exhibition presented by Tempora (Be) and IKA (De)



"Hyperrealism" is an art movement that began in the United States in the 1970s. Shunning abstraction, the hyperrealist artist seeks to achieve a meticulous representation of nature, to the point that observers sometimes wonder if they are in the presence of living bodies. The works are sometimes amusing, sometimes disturbing, but always meaningful.

With a selection of some forty hyperrealist sculptures by leading international artists (Paul McCarthy, George Segal, Ron Mueck, Maurizio Cattelan, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Duane Hanson, Carole Feuerman, John De Andrea, and others) the exhibition “Ceci n’est pas un corps. Hyperrealism – Sculpture” will illustrate the evolution of the human figure in the works of hyperrealist sculptors from the 1970s to the present day. The selection will highlight different key issues in this approach to figurative realism and show how our perception of the human body has continuously evolved.
