"Duane Hanson" at the New National Museum, Monaco.
Throughout his forty-year career, Duane Hanson created hyperrealistic size sculptures representing Americans of the working class and members of society often ignored.
Referring to the Pop Art movement, sculptures transform the banality and meaninglessness of everyday life in iconographic material. The exhibition, initiated by the Serpentine Galleries in London, presents the major works of the artist. The hyperrealism of these sculptures direct result of the artistic approach of Duane Hanson. With polyester resin and fiberglass, it mold live models in his studio, paying attention to every detail, from the hair to the veins and bruises. The sculptures are then assembled, meticulously tailored and finalized, the artist himself choosing carefully the clothing and accessories.
Until August 28th. www.nmnm.mc
