I saw this exhibit on Sunday. The artworks are strangely compelling and in some cases made me cry. There is a very small version of a crouching boy. I saw the humongous (?) version, 5 metres high, in Denmark last year and cannot forget it. If you are interested I can email you some pics of it. I’ll be interested to hear your family’s reaction to Ron Mueck’s work.

We went on Saturday. It’s a fascinating exhibit. Gordie enjoyed it immensely.
