Description

Although some of the sculptures are heart-warming to look at – such as an elderly couple gently resting on each under a bright-coloured parasol – Mr Mueck is not afraid to create more startling creations. Another one of his most shocking creations is a giant baby that has just been born, covered in blood with the umbilical cord hanging from his stomach. In a rare interview he told Sculptureorg: ‘I don’t think of them as mannequins. On one hand, I try to create a believable presence; and, on the other hand, they have to work as objects. They aren’t living persons, although it’s nice to stand in front of them and be unsure whether they are or not. ‘But ultimately, they’re fiberglass objects that you can pick up and carry. If they succeed as fun things to have in the room, I’m happy. At the same time, I wouldn’t be satisfied if they didn’t have some kind of presence that made you think they’re more than just objects.’
