Hyperrealism Sculpture: This is not a body
Tour and Taxis – Until Dec 12, 2021 Brussels (Belgium)
“Hyperrealism Sculpture. This is not a body ” is an exhibition on hyperrealism. An artistic movement born in the United States in the 1960s and whose techniques are still explored by many contemporary artists.
The exhibition presents a series of hyperrealistic sculptures that challenge our vision of art. Reality, art or copy? The hyperrealist artist abandons the abstract. And tries to create the most faithful representation possible of nature. They represent the human body so realistically that viewers start to wonder if it is real. The works of art thus create a feeling of alienation, without losing any of their meaning.
The title of the exhibition refers to the famous work by René Magritte ‘This is not a pipe’, which questions the relationship between art and reality. The artists, who are exhibited at La Boverie, strive to represent the human body as faithfully and as vividly as possible.
