Object spotlight: Ron Mueck’s “Crouching Boy in Mirror”
This piece is a staff (and visitor) favorite. Ron Mueck got his start in visual art working in special effects. His sculptures of human figures are strange and uncanny, with a distorted scale. The “Crouching Boy” looks realistic, but in person the viewer realizes how small he is. Peering into a mirror, he captures the viewer in his reflection, and the effect is unnerving.
