Ceci n’est pas un corps


Real or fake? Immerse yourself in the troubling world of the hyperrealism.              

After Bilbao, Canberra, Rotterdam, Liège and Brussels, where it met with huge success, the travelling exhibition ‘Hyperrealism. Ceci n'est pas un corps’ is coming to Lyon in an enriched version with some brand-new features. It needed a setting commensurate with the exceptional nature of the works presented: La Sucrière fulfils this role marvellously.                                

The exhibition presents a series of hyperrealistic sculptures that undermine our vision of art. Reality, art or copy? The hyperrealist artist abandons the abstract and tries to create the most accurate representation of nature possible. They depict the human body so realistically that visitors start to wonder whether it is real. In this way, the works of art create a feeling of alienation, without losing any of their meaning.                                   

The exhibition brings together more than 40 sculptures by leading international artists: George Segal, Ron Mueck, Maurizio Cattelan, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Duane Hanson, Carole A. Feuerman, John DeAndrea...                                                                                                                                                        
An exhibition representative of an artistic movement as a whole that takes you to the frontiers of reality!
A coproduction between Tempora and Institut für Kulturaustausch in close collaboration with the Musée Maillol in Paris.
