Finland, summer part 4, Ron Mueck

Mask II, believed to be a self-portrait

Nuutajärvi is not that far from Tampere so was good to go to visit Ron Mueck exhibition in Sara Hildén´s Art Museum. Really stunning work! Ron Mueck is an Australian sculptor, born in 1958 in a German family. This was first time his works were presented in Nordic countries and there was 10 of his works presented. His work is hyper-realistic, like-life figures, but never in an actual size. They are either massive size or much smaller, like miniatures. 

Mask II, size 77 x 118 x 85 cm

Couple under an umbrella, 300 x 400 x 350 cm

Just look at the details, so realistic!

Mother and Child, 24 x 36 x 89 cm

Man in a sheet, 34 x 48,5 x 50 cm

Youth 65 x 28 x 16 cm

A Girl, 110 x 501 x 134,5 cm

Man in Blankets 43 x 59,5 x 71 cm

Spooning Couple 14 x 65 x 35 cm

Woman with shopping 113 x 46 x 30 cm

Tampere where the exhibition was held is my favorite city in Finland. Unfortunaly I just couldn´t find a good parking spot to stay overnight in the city, but there is campsite available in Tampere if you like to stay more days there. So sorry, no GPS coordinates to share!
