PARIS - Opening today and running until the end of September, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain will host the first major European exhibition of Ron Mueck's work since 2005. A film has been produced for the show by Gautier Deblonde, showing this reclusive artist at work – and the still below show the meticulous nature of the artist's work.

Below the slideshow, watch a video of Ron Mueck at work in his studio.
