The Mummy Paradox

December 11, 2009 - January 8, 2010

Place : Bloomington Art Center


Bloomington Art Center hosts a sculptural exhibition consisting of thousands of clay mummy figures created by artists Mark D Roberts and Denise Rouleau. Ranging in size from the intimate to the colossal, the work explores questions about life, death and human nature.

The artists state, “We view mummies in a curious way. They are repugnant and at the same time captivating. We are in awe of them, but perhaps do not envy them. We want to unravel their secrets, but as we search for answers among the bones and artifacts have to ask ourselves who we are and how will we be remembered.”
