  • Exhibition in Brussels explores human beings through hyper-realistic art

    Brussels, Sep 18 (EFE) .- (Camera: Leo Rodríguez) Confusion, shame, strangeness and, sometimes, even fear is what brings together the more than 40 works in the exhibition "Ceci n'est pas un corps "('This is not a body'), which brings together the great masters of hyperrealist culture in one of the capitals of surrealism, Brussels.FOOTAGE OF THE EXHIBITION.SOUNDBITES OF EMILIE DEROM, COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR OF THE EXHIBITION.Translation:"Hyper-realistic artists turn their backs on abstraction. They try to get a very detailed representation of nature and, therefore, of the human body.As you can see behind me, some sculptures give the feeling that they are real people. The visitor is very confused. Am I dealing with a real body or a fake body? All the details are there. The contours, the textures, the hair and the nails, it is very disturbing." "Hyper-realistic artists still want to convey a message. So all these sculptures carry a certain message." "In 2008 he found himself in a difficult situation, which is why he finally represents the loss of control he had over his own body. Situations without perspectives and that is the interesting thing about hyperrealist artists, there is a message behind it."
