GUM unboxes masterpiece for PHALLUS. Norm & Form

GUM welcomed an important guest on Thursday. This 'muscle man' came over from the University Museum Groningen and will be given a central place in the exhibition PHALLUS. Norm & Form, which opens March 24.


This anatomical model of a man is made of papier-mâché and is crerated by the same person as the exceptional horse in the museum, the French doctor Louis Auzoux (1797-1880).

Colleagues from the University of Groningen accompanied the muscle man with great care to Ghent.

The 'masterpiece' of this masterpiece has not yet been mounted in these photos ...

The look down leads to questions up there.
