Suite of four photogravures

Auditions, a suite of four photogravures, feature satirical sculptural busts representing four basic and universal human emotions: happiness, sadness, anger and pensiveness. Auditions initially began as a project of photographs of sculptures representing fifty-two different facial expressions. After completing the first four (that now make up Auditions), Muniz abandoned the project and initiated Individuals, the series of photogravures based on fifty-two photographs of various sculptures shaped out of one piece of clay. Published by Graphicstudio, Muniz’s Auditions are universally humorous character studies that recall the 19th century satirical sculptures by the French satirist Honoré Daumier (1808-79).


The Artist

Vik Muniz

Starting his artistic career off as a sculptor, Vik Muniz then found his passion was leaning more towards photography. This Brazilian born artist works in both New York and Rio de Janiero. He presents much of his bold work now through photography, reproducing famous paintings or often his photos can illustrate art history or pop culture. He is known to use unusual materials in his work such as sugar, wire, garbage and coloured paper, even diamonds.
