About

On display for the first time since its world premiere in 2017, and for the first time ever at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, is Ron Mueck’s large-scale installation, Mass, 2016–17, comprising more than 100 hand-cast skulls, each measuring 1.5m and collectively weighing approximately five tonnes. Australian-born Ron Mueck has been creating hyper-realistic, figurative sculptures since his debut as an artist in 1997. His work is known for its attention to detail, choice of subjects and use of scale.
