‘Hyperrealism Sculpture. Ceci n’est pas un corps’ is an exhibition on hyperrealism, an art movement that began in the United States in the 1960s and whose techniques are still being explored by many contemporary artists.

The exhibition presents a series of hyperrealistic sculptures that undermine our vision on 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 viewers 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 title of the exhibition refers to René Magritte’s famous work ‘Ceci n’est pas une pipe’, which questions the relationship between art and reality. The artists, who are exhibited in La Boverie, strive to depict the human body as faithfully and vividly as possible.
