In Bed

Ron Mueck


In Bed is over 21 feet long. It was made last year and was one of the highlights of the recent show at the Cartier Foundation in Paris. The woman's chin rests on her hand as, sunk in thought, her eyes stare through you into the distance. It is a pose that bespeaks introspection, worry perhaps, but above all, it is a pose that shows the mind as detached (as much as it ever can be) from the body.
